Government intervention results in 4G peace talks

Derek du Preez | Sept. 12, 2012
Senior government officials have intervened in the ongoing dispute over 4G spectrum, which has resulted in the UK’s four mobile operators agreeing to a one month hiatus on any legal action in order to carry out peace talks.

It also said that the decision is "bizarre", given that Everything Everywhere is reportedly very close to sealing a deal with Three to sell it some of its old 2G spectrum, which was part of the agreement when T-Mobile and Orange merged to become EE.

The 4G auction will offer spectrum in at least two frequency bands - 800MHz and 2.6GHz. The 800MHz band is part of the 'digital dividend', and is ideal for providing mobile coverage over wide areas, while the 2.6GHz band offers high capacity.
