Hi everyone,

I would like to understand how the frequency bandwidth will be allocated for 5G in the UK? Will this be on a bids basis, leased from government or distributed another way?

If there are any sources to help understand this I would much appreciate it!

Many thanks.

    Some spectrum at 3.4GHz has already been sold (by auction) to the existing UK mobile operators. Ofcom will award more spectrum in the 700MHz and 3.6-3.8GHz bands by Q2 2020. The spectrum, which has reserve prices, will be auctioned to the highest bidders. Coverage conditions will be imposed. Contact me at if you would like more info.
