Consultation on the Future Use of Spectrum

Published On:Friday, September 13, 2019


The Commission is consulting on the release of key Spectrum bands that will facilitate the roll out of new technologies such as 5G, as well as providing continuity for current generation services in the intervening period.


The primary purpose of this consultation is to signal the Commission’s preliminary views and gather information on the level of demand for the different bands available. This will in turn allow the Commission to design a process for ensuring that access to the spectrum is awarded to parties that will make the most efficient use of it in the interests of the Manx consumer and economy, on a fair and non-discriminatory basis.


The consultation is available to view and respond to here as well as on the Consultation Hub.   Comments and feedback on the Future Use of Spectrum are welcomed via the Consultation Hub or by email to with the consultation closing on 23rd October.
