Confirmed bidders for Ofcom spectrum auction


Ofcom has today confirmed the names of the companies due to take part in the upcoming spectrum auction.


Ofcom is planning to release airwaves in the 700 MHz and 3.6-3.8 GHz bands through an auction. In December, we announced the following applicants had qualified to participate in the auction process:

· EE Limited

· Hutchison 3G UK Limited

· Telefónica UK Limited

· Vodafone Limited


Following the passing of the deadline to withdraw from the process, these companies are now the confirmed bidders for the auction.


We are keeping the timing of the start of bidding in the auction under careful review in light of the recent worsening of the coronavirus situation, and will publish an update on this in due course.
