Broadband provider Freedom4 has announced it can now offer mobile WiMax services to its customers thanks a ruling by Ofcom.
The regulator has granted the internet service provider a variation in its licence so it can now enjoy flexibility that allows it to "meet the challenges and demands of a future mobile market".
Freedom4 currently owns the UK's largest WiMax broadband spectrum, which consists of two blocks of 84MHz in the frequency band 3.6 to 4.2 GHz.
Mike Read, Chief Executive Officer of Freedom4, said: "These changes to our licence will enable us to provide both fixed and mobile wireless services to our customers using the next generation of mobile technology."
Freedom4 is part of the Daisy Group, which offers integrated voice and data solutions to both small and medium-sized customers.
The internet service provider offers WiMax internet services through its joint venture with Intel, while its service coverage currently takes in Manchester, Milton Keynes and Warwick.
