Three Network Wants You to Moan to Ofcom About Spectrum Wins

By Gary Cutlack on at

A group of UK mobile and broadband networks is asking their customers to pressurise Ofcom into making the mobile data spectrum allocations fairer (for them), suggesting that future spectrum caps should be limited to just 30 per cent per operator of available spectrum within each chunk that's sold off.

The matter is so serious that the group of operators have put together a cartoon image of Sharon White, Ofcom's still quite new boss, to help urge the kids to sign a petition that's being hosted by their own, totally impartial they promise, campaign site Make the air fair.

It's the work of Three, TalkTalk, CityFibre, Gamma and Relish, who say we should say: "I believe that Ofcom must address this in the upcoming auction for 2.3GHz and 3.4GHz spectrum, making sure that following this auction, no operator is allowed to own more than 30% of the total mobile phone spectrum in the UK -- referred to as option E in the consultation."

It's all been pre-filled in a petition letter if you also feel strongly about airwave portion sizes. [Make the air fair via Computer Weekly]
