The UKs 4G auction raised £1.5 billion less than what was intended, so there is no surprise that the Government want to squeeze more money out of the operators. Currently, the “big four” of EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three UK pay £64.5 million a year in licensing fees but Ofcom are looking at plans to quadruple those fees. Ofcon says that they have concerns that the spectrum is undervauled and they want to raisse Vodafone and O2’s fees to £83.1 million, Three UK to £37.5 million and Ee to £101.7 million a year.
