3 UK loses last appeal against 5G spectrum rules

Wednesday 14 February 2018 | 12:03 CET | News
The UK Court of Appeals has rejected 3 UK's attempt to block the upcoming 5G spectrum auction, the Telegraph reported. The operator lost the court case in December after a ruling from the High Court and had lodged an appeal. 3 UK wanted the regulator to impose a 30 percent spectrum cap in order to stop EE (BT) from participating. Ofcom welcomed the decision and said it now press ahead with releasing the airwaves, important for the launch of 5G services.
