Qualcomm wins bid for UK radio spectrum

American telecomms manufacturer Qualcomm has paid £8.3 million to win the spectrum rights to the so-called L band of 1452MHz to 1492MHz in the UK, which was being auctioned by Ofcom. Curiously, it’s not yet said exactly what it plans to use the frequencies for, although Ofcom had previously suggested the L Band would be suitable for mobile TV, satellite digital radio or broadband wireless access.
