BT's mobile unit wades into 5G battle against Three
BT’S mobile arm EE is preparing to go into battle with rival operator Three over billions of pounds worth of airwaves, amid fears of delays to 5G network upgrade plans. Three’s planned judicial review aims to impose tighter restrictions on the share of the airwaves EE is allowed to buy. Its challenge to the auction rules is focused on the higher 5G frequency, where Ofcom plans to impose a 37pc cap on the overall share of the airwaves an operator is allowed to own. It has also urged Ofcom to consider bundling the airwaves into a 5G super-auction alongside other frequencies due to be made available in the next few years.
