Cluster 2 has the goal to capture current and future Use requirements for spectrum [as apart from the Applications and Demand for spectrum] and to enable understanding and discussion around the current and future proposed methods of Access to spectrum.

  6. Recommend 'new/changed methods' to Government, Ofcom and Internationally
