The provision of the 800MHz radio spectrum would be "good news" for mobile broadband, according to T-Mobile.
Speaking to the BBC, the provider's head of regulatory affairs, Robyn Durie, has welcomed plans laid out in a recent report from Ofcom.
The bandwidth would be made available as a result of the move from analogue radio to digital which is scheduled to take place.
Ms Durie said: "It is good news for us. Mobile broadband needs a big chunk of spectrum and previously we didn't have that.
"It means that consumers will be able to use the same services abroad that they can use at home."
According to Ofcom, consumers would ultimately benefit from the freeing up of the spectrum, enjoying cheaper broadband prices in the future.
