Ofcom has amended the terms of the radio spectrum licence held by ISP UK Broadband.

The new contract permits the broadband provider to offer internet connections to mobile broadband-enabled devices as well fixed wireless broadband on the 3.5 GHz band.

UK Broadband had requested the change to make it technology and application neutral, Vnu.net reports.

In so doing it is hoped that this will allow the firm to use the radio spectrum more flexibly.

A statement from the telecommunications watchdog said: "Ofcom believes that removing restrictions on the licensee will benefit consumers, encourage competition and optimise use of the spectrum.

"It is therefore in the interests of citizens and consumers, and the likelihood of interference to other users is low."

UK Broadband has a customer base of 15,000.
