Coexistence of new services in the 700 MHz band with digital terrestrial television - Ofcom May 2017
"This consultation presents our technical analysis of coexistence issues between future mobile services in the 700 MHz band and digital terrestrial television (DTT) in the adjacent band.

The 700 MHz spectrum band currently houses DTT and wireless microphones used for programme making and special events (PMSE). In November 2014, Ofcom decided that the 700 MHz spectrum band would be repurposed for mobile data services. At that time we also presented results of our initial work on coexistence issues.

We have now completed more detailed work to investigate the nature and scale of potential interference risks. We also discuss technical aspects of some potential solutions to mitigate the risks."

Improving spectrum access for consumers in the 5 GHz band - Ofcom
From cover email:
"Ofcom has today confirmed plans to increase the amount of spectrum available for Wi-Fi in the 5 GHz band. In the future, this could enable better wireless broadband for consumers.
As broadband delivered to the home gets faster, people increasingly expect their Wi-Fi to provide several services at once – such as video streaming, video calls, gaming and remote working. This demand puts pressure on the spectrum which carries Wi-Fi signals.
Many Wi-Fi routers in the UK currently use a part of the spectrum called the 2.4 GHz band, which is becoming increasingly congested and can impair broadband performance. Many people have newer broadband routers, which use not only the 2.4 GHz band, but also the 5 GHz band – which has much more spectrum and is less congested.
Ofcom has decided to open up an additional ‘sub-band’ within the 5.8 GHz section of the 5 GHz band. In deciding to do so, we have taken into account the impact on other existing users, such as satellite services.
The extra sub-band will result in 125 MHz more spectrum. This will allow for two more 80MHz channels to accommodate data-hungry applications. These extra channels are already being used in other countries, including the US.
In order to implement the decision, Ofcom is now consulting with UK stakeholders on proposed regulations which will allow Wi-Fi use in this band. The making of the new regulations will also be contingent on any comments the European Commission may have on the technical parameters we propose to apply to the use of the band.
The closing date for responses to this consultation document is 11th April 2017."

A framework for spectrum sharing | Ofcom July 2015
Ofcom is today seeking views on a proposed new framework for thinking about spectrum sharing that would offer a model for considering whether frequencies have the potential to be shared. Sharing will become increasingly important as demand increases. By allowing different users to offer more wireless applications, spectrum sharing can bring benefits to citizens and consumers as well as contributing to optimal use of spectrum. The proposed framework would: identify barriers to sharing; include regulatory tools and market and technological enablers that have potential to facilitate further sharing; and, set out how sharing would be considered on a case-by-case basis, taking into account any existing uses and proposed new uses. Today’s consultation closes on 2 October.

TV white spaces: approach to coexistence -- Ofcom Sep 2013
TV white spaces: approach to coexistence Consultation published 04|09|2013 Consultation addendum published 24|10|2013 Ofcom has today (24/10) published a clarification on the TV white spaces: approach to coexistence consultation. This clarifies its proposals regarding coexistence with DTT following the identification of a mathematical error in one of its calculations. The addendum is listed under the original consultation document below. We have also extended by four weeks, the closing date for the consultation which is now 13 December 2013.

Ofcom | Spectrum above 6 GHz for future mobile communications - Jan 2015
"This document asks for stakeholder input on spectrum bands above 6 GHz that might be suitable for future mobile communication services, often referred to as 5G (the 5th generation of mobile services)."

Ofcom | Strategic Review of UHF Spectrum 420-470 MHz: UHF Bands 1 and 2
"This Call for Inputs forms part of our strategic review of the 420-470 MHz band (also known as UHF bands 1 and 2). In this document, we explain how the current uses and configuration of this band brings about challenges for its efficient management, with particular implications for managing congestion, future competing demand, and interference. We are publishing alongside this Call for Inputs a report from Aegis examining these matters. We have also developed a broad programme of work designed to develop our understanding and support future decisions for managing the 420-470 MHz band. This document invites comments from stakeholders on Aegis’s findings, as well as other input which stakeholders consider relevant to our analysis of the 420-470 MHz band, including our proposed work programme for the next phase of our strategic review."
