JRC Response to Ofcom consultation on WRC-15

The 1.4 GHz fixed link UHF band (1350-1375 MHz paired with 1492 -1517 MHz) is a valuable asset used by most UK electricity companies for operational communications. It should be protected against surrender to mobile data services unless an equivalent band can be made available in a similar frequency band. In setting the Agenda for WRC18, identifying suitable spectrum for utilities’ operational communications should be included.
