    Sky Prevented Itself from 4G Auction While EE Wants the Decision


    As a promising fourth operator, Sky, the digital TV, radio and broadband provider have eliminated itself in bidding at the 4G auction. It would bid for the spectrum that is being retained by communications regulator Ofcom for an operator except for Everything and Everywhere, Vodafone and O2, the news derives after the BT pointed out. Sky stated that as they pursue to extend their leadership in mobile content, they presently have no plans to provide mobile access over their current public Wi-Fi network.

    Sky will combine with Virgin Media that isolated itself from the process by claiming that it was not looking to become a mobile operator and it will not go to bid for a large piece of the spectrum but it did not entirely prevented a bid. Specifically as it already functions as a mobile operator and as Ofcom has particularly referred to the network as part of its 4G auction statement, mobile network Three is extensively reported to be the most popular to guarantee the spectrum.

    The assertion has been accepted by Everything Everywhere or EE, Vodafone and O2, they have all said that Ofcom’s final decision is another step forward for the release of 4G services. Everything Everywhere has encouraged Ofcom to declare the outcome of the consultation process where the communications regulator has to determine if EE can utilize its current 1800MHz spectrum to turn out 4G services at the same time.

    After it agreed to pressure from competitor networks set up by Ofcom, the consultation process will end on May 8. Along with any of its competitors, they complained EE for looking for an unfair benefit as it would be able to release 4G services. The spokesperson of Everything Everywhere said that they are still expecting for feedback coming from Ofcom about the request to cater 4G using their current 1800MHz spectrum and it is about 7-8 months after they put in the request last year. They hope that Ofcom will make the decision as soon as possible.

    On the other side, they have been utilizing on that matter, the public interest needs a lot of observation, it was according to an Ofcom spokesperson and it will be a matter of weeks or a month however there is not a date that they can carry out. Meanwhile the communications regulator also justified that the 4G auction process is working out in parallel separately in the consultation decision.

    If Ofcom did conclude to let the network to utilize its 1800MHz spectrum for 4G, before the end of the year the 4G services would at first be turned out on a small scale, EE said. The spokesperson of EE added that there is no timeline and it also plans if and when Ofcom will give them the signal, it would be prior to the end of the year that 4G services will rise. Afterwards they can set everything in place and be more particular with the release date however they are expecting that they will have the approval to turn out 4G services.
