UK media regulator Ofcom plans to auction licences for the country's largest single release of radio spectrum with a total of 215 MHz, which can be used for services such as mobile broadband and advanced wireless.

The proposals are part of a wider programme to release around 400 MHz of prime spectrum over the next few years, the regulator said in a statement.

For now, Ofcom proposes to auction licences to use three spectrum bands: 2500-2690 MHz, 2010-2025 MHz and 2290-2300 MHz. It plans to release the spectrum on a technology and service neutral basis.
