Mobile broadband providers to get 3G license deal

28th January 2009

Mobile broadband providers could receive indefinite use of the 3G licence if they go ahead with the spending plans outlined in the Digital Britain report

The delayed Digital Britain report from Lord Carter (Communications Minister) is due to be released in the next few days but this hasn't stopped leaks of what is likely to be included in it.
Part of it claims that UK mobile broadband providers won't have to pay to renew their 3G licences and may be able to keep them indefinitely if they support the spending plans that he outlines in his report.

Back in 2000, five mobile phone operators (such as Vodafone & O2) paid around 23 billion collectively for a 20 year long 3G licence.
