Clearance and Coexistence
From time to time Ofcom undertakes activities to clear existing authorised users to help make spectrum available for new uses (clearance). We may also work with existing users to consider how they can co-exist with new uses by managing any potential interference (coexistence).
As part of the 4G auction (800 MHz and 2.6 GHz combined award), Ofcom is working with existing authorised users in or adjacent to the 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz frequency bands. These activities are listed below.
