Spectrum trading and liberalisation

Spectrum trading and liberalisation combined with complementary policies such as administrative incentive pricing, play an important part in securing the optimal use of the radio spectrum.

They can help promote innovation, investment and competition in the supply of wireless services, economic growth, and open up new opportunities for businesses to innovate and grow, giving consumers faster access to new services and lower prices.

The regulations and legislation relating to spectrum trading are available from the Office of Public Sector Information. Your licence may contain provisions on spectrum leasing, which is a form of trading.
