Ofcom confirms PMSE equipment grant scheme for 700 MHz clearance

Friday 24 August 2018 | 11:02 CET | News
Ofcom has confirmed that it will manage a grant scheme funded by the government to support the owners of PMSE (Programme Making and Special Events) equipment impacted by the planned release of 700 MHz spectrum for mobile broadband use. The regulator is seeking stakeholders' view on the scheme eligibility criteria, which now offer improved terms from those originally set out. Claimants can apply to receive at least 60 percent of the costs incurred for replacement equipment, up from 47 percent in earlier proposals.
