Boost for rural UK broadband: "Just before Christmas, the Department of Trade and Industry said it would let internet service providers and community groups use the 5.8Ghz Band C spectrum. .. The Ministry of Defence had resisted opening up the spectrum because it has radar systems operating in Band C of the 5GHz part of the spectrum.
As from 5 January, groups can apply for licences to use the radio frequency from the new communications regulator, Ofcom. The fees have been kept deliberately low, with a cost of £1 per net terminal, subject to a minimum of annual charge of £50. " 9:31:23 AM
