Nominet participating in Ofcom trial

2nd October 2013

We will be among the suppliers providing a database as part of Ofcom’s ‘white space’ trials for making use of available wireless frequencies without causing interference to other devices.

Given our expertise in successfully managing and maintaining the database that underpins the .uk domain name registry, we are well positioned to build and operate a similar facility for this new trial.

There are a range of possible applications for the frequencies made available, which could include, for example, delivering rural broadband.

We expect that, depending on Ofcom timescales, we will be participating in a trial early next year.
