Remember White Space technology? In case you’ve forgotten, it allows the gaps in radio spectrum that exist between Digital Terrestrial TV (470MHz to 790MHz) channels to be harnessed and used for broadband or other communication services. Sadly developers have struggled to meet Ofcom’s licensing requirements, so the regulator has had to cut a few corners.

The UK telecoms regulator is considering granting “transitional” approval to a number of manually configured devices that harness the new White Space technology, which uses the gaps in radio spectrum between digital TV (UHF 470MHz to 790MHz) channels in order to deliver wireless broadband or other communication services over a wide area.

The United Kingdom’s national telecoms regulator has today officially given the green light to the commercial use and deployment of so-called White Space broadband technology, which harnesses the gaps in radio spectrum that exist between Digital Terrestrial TV (470MHz to 790MHz) channels in order to deliver wireless Internet connectivity over a wide area.

The communications regulator has today issued a brief update covering the on-going trials of White Space (IEEE 802.22) wireless technology, which among other things can intelligently harness the unused spectrum gaps that exist between Digital Terrestrial TV (DTV) channels in order to deliver broadband services over a wide area.

The communications regulator has today set out its approach and priorities (e.g. future 5G mobile broadband) for managing and sharing (e.g. white space technology) the country’s radio spectrum up to the year 2025. As part of this, Ofcom has also published an Interactive Spectrum Map to show how different frequencies are used in the United Kingdom.

The Digital UK group, which acts on behalf of the BBC, ITV, Arqiva and Channel 4, has offered its “support for the principle” of developing White Space Broadband technology. But it also warned that the regulators current approach raised “serious concerns” about potential for disruption to existing Digital Terrestrial TV (DTTV) coverage.

The telecoms regulator has today launched an all-encompassing Mobile Data Strategy consultation that will attempt to identify and free-up a maximum of 881MHz in additional downlink radio spectrum (the 600MHz, 700MHz, 2.3GHz, 2.7GHz, 3.4GHz and 3.7GHz bands) for use by superfast 4G and future 5G style Mobile Broadband services.

Mobile operator Vodafone UK has warned that today’s move by Ofcom (here), which has created the “opportunity” for 10 new Freeview HD TV channels to be launched by using airwaves in the 600MHz radio spectrum band, could hinder the plan to free up existing 700MHz spectrum for use by future ultra-fast 5G based Mobile Broadband services.

Ofcom has today called upon the UK telecoms industry to take part in its forthcoming autumn 2013 pilot of White Space (IEEE 802.22) wireless broadband technology, which harnesses the unused radio spectrum that exists between Digital Terrestrial TV channels to deliver wifi style connectivity over a wide area.

Ofcom UK has today proposed a new framework to support the future use of White Space (IEEE 802.22) based wireless broadband technology on a licence exempt basis. The new service harnesses unused radio spectrum, which exists between Digital TV channels (470MHz to 790MHz), to deliver wifi style connectivity over a wide area.

Ofcom has today begun to set out plans that will eventually enable the release of new airwaves (UHF radio spectrum), such as the controversial 700MHz and 600MHz band used by Digital TV services, which could be used by a future generation of 5G Mobile Broadband or WiFi style internet solutions. But it will be 2018 before anything happens.

A new Government commissioned report from Analysys Mason has revealed that the total radio spectrum (e.g. wifi, digital tv, 3G etc.) market was worth £52 billion a year to the UK economy in 2011 (up 25% in real terms since 2006) and rising. But Mobile Broadband is going to get cheaper.
