The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has today released an independent report 'Incorporating Social Value into Spectrum Allocation' on ensuring an evaluation of social value is incorporated into Spectrum Allocation decisions.
The UK Spectrum Strategy, launched in 2014, sets out the Government's approach to the efficient management of radio spectrum in the UK. The 'Incorporating Social Value into Spectrum Allocation' Report will help better inform decision making on spectrum allocation in Government and by the regulator, and help stakeholders understand the decision making process.
The upcoming UK Spectrum Policy Forum event "Enabling Spectrum to Deliver a Positive Digital Future" on Wednesday 16 December will explore the contribution of spectrum to UK ambitions on economic growth and societal improvements with members of DCMS's Expert Panel, authors of the report, in addition to launching the final report in the 'UK Spectrum Access and Demand' series.
