Open Market Spectrum

While the US still struggles to work out a comprehensive regulatory policy on spectrum allocation, the UK's Oftel continues to move forward with their plans to let spectrum trade on the open market, allowing it to (1) be valued more accurately and (2) be used in the most reasonable way. Peter Judge, over at Techworld, has a nice writeup detailing what Ofcom's decision means in terms of spectrum allocation and technology development in the UK. While the article doesn't necessarily bring up very much that's new, it is a good summary of what Ofcom is trying to do, and what it really means.
