Future Use of Spectrum

Closed 23 Oct 2019

Opened 12 Sep 2019


The Commission is consulting on the release of key Spectrum bands that will facilitate the roll out of new technologies such as 5G, as well as providing continuity for current generation services in the intervening period.

Why We Are Consulting

The primary purpose of this consultation is to signal the Commission’s preliminary views and gather information on the level of demand for the different bands available. This will in turn allow the Commission to design a process for ensuring that access to the spectrum is awarded to parties that will make the most efficient use of it in the interests of the Manx consumer and economy, on a fair and non-discriminatory basis.

What Happens Next

Following the closing date all responses will be considered. The Commission will then prepare and publish a summary of the responses and its consideration of the responses received, and details of any further consultation and/or decision(s).
