Jane started as Senior Spectrum Advisor in January 2015 having retired from the Civil Service in November 2014. She brings experience of working with users of spectrum spanning more than 30 years to her current role. Her 4 years at Oftel were in the early days of competition between Vodafone and Cellnet and culminated in 1989 with the beauty contest to select new 2G operators at 1800MHz. After periods working on financial services and the DTI's services in the regions and overseas, she became Deputy Director of the 3G Auction Team based at the Radiocommunications Agency. With the licences successfully granted and paid for, she returned to DTI to lead the broadcasting team and specifically digital TV switchover. She became Head of Spectrum Policy at DCMS in March 2012, in time to play an active role in the 4G auction. The UK Spectrum Strategy which was launched by the Prime Minister in March 2014 capped Jane's Civil Service career.
