Ofcom has announced details of its fourth auction of radio spectrum licences, which is being targeted towards use in the wireless broadband sector, among other things:

The high frequency spectrum is suitable for a number of different uses including high-capacity broadband, for example, for organisations seeking to share wireless internet connections across buildings in close proximity.

The spectrum bands are between 10 GHz and 40 GHz. This means that it can carry large amounts of data over distances of up to 12 kilometres. The provisional date for applications to take part in the auction is 16 January 2008; confirmation of this will be made before Christmas.
