Mobile broadband providers to get 3G deal

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

As more details leak out from the Communications Minister’s report on Digital Britain it looks as if the government is willing to offer incentives to the businesses involved in the industry, in an attempt to get the ‘broadband for all’ plan and the development of a next generation broadband network in place.

It seems that mobile broadband providers could be offered special deals on their existing third generation (3G) mobile phone licences if they are willing to adopt Lord Carter’s new spending plans for the industry.

The cost of creating the next generation network and connecting all households to a broadband service are key to these deals with the industry.

Mobile broadband providers could be allowed to keep their 3G licences for an indefinite period, for free, in return for supporting Lord Carter’s plans.

In 2000 the mobile phone industry paid £22.5 billion for the twenty year long licence for 3G.
