Annual licence fees for 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum

Statement published 24|09|2015

The Government directed Ofcom in 2010 to revise the fees for 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum licences to reflect the full market value of those frequencies. The fees are paid by the mobile operators (EE, H3G, Telefonica and Vodafone) who use some of the spectrum to provide 2G and 3G services, including voice calls, and some for 4G mobile services.

This document sets out our decision on the revised fees for these 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum licences.
