UK Chancellor George Osborne confirmed that up to GBP 550 million will be invested over the Parliament to make the 700Mhz spectrum band available for mobile broadband use. In the Autumn Statement, he also confirmed that the government would complete the GBP 1.7 billion investment into the superfast broadband programme to ensure it is available to 95 percent of premises by 2017.
