Qualcomm UK Spectrum (QUKS) has agreed to sell all of its L-Band spectrum (1452 – 1492 MHz) to Vodafone UK and 3 UK for an undisclosed amount. QUKS will sell each operator 20 MHz of spectrum, which can be used for supplemental downlink and to  help meet demand for increased mobile data traffic. It also delivers increases in downlink user experience through aggregation with licensed Frequency-Division Duplexing (FDD) spectrum. Both sales are subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. Qualcomm, Vodafone and 3 will soon submit spectrum transfer applications to Ofcom.
