MOD to auction off radio spectrum

By Sharon Black

Radio spectrum refers to the radio waves over which all wireless communication takes place, including radio, television, radar, satellite, mobile voice and data. Under plans announced today, the MOD intends to auction around 200 Megahertz ( MHz ) of its spectrum usage rights. The announcement comes as market demand for extra spectrum is mounting, fuelled by the sharp rise in the use of spectrum-hungry devices such as smartphones and tablets.
