Annual licence fees for 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum

Consultation published 10|10|2013

Update 17/4/14: We have published a consultation on a specific issue relating to the methodology we propose to adopt if we derive the appropriate discount rate for annualising ‘lump sum’ amounts into annual fees on the basis of the consumer price index (rather than the retail price index).

Update 18|11|13: The date for receipt of responses on the consultation on revising annual licence fees for the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum bands has been moved to 16th January (from 19th December) in response to a stakeholder request to have more time to consider the proposals.

Update 11|10|13: We have corrected the description and labelling of Figure 5.3 on page 53 which should have referred to "... base level ALF (£ million)" and not to "... base level of ALF in the first year (£ per MHz).

Responses : Vodafone Annexes 5 and 10 are confidential and are not published.
