The 4G auction is expected to start in January and Ofcom have confirmed the bidders will be taking place, including – EE, O2, Vodafone, Three and also some not so well known companies.
MLL Telecom Ltd, a Buckinghamshire based network supplier will be bidding as well as a Hong Kong company which provides mobile services. In addition, BT will also want a slice of the pie.
Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards said: “The 4G auction will be a competitive process that will dictate the shape of the UK mobile phone market for the next decade and beyond.
“New 4G services will stimulate investment, growth and innovation in the UK and deliver significant benefits to consumers in terms of better, faster and more reliable mobile broadband connections.”
It should make for an interesting start to the New Year.
