UK wireless provider Qualcomm has spent £8.3 million to purchase 40MHz of wireless spectrum in the UK. Qualcomm says that its newly purchase L-band spectrum would have a chunk used for 1.4GHz broadband wireless connectivity. The purchase was made from Ofcom after it opened bidding in the L-Band 1452-1492 range in March.

"Winning this licence creates an opportunity for Qualcomm to explore emerging business models and advanced mobile technologies," said John Caterer, UK managing director for Qualcomm Europe.

Qualcomm says that it is looking to work with providers that want to launch new services, but it didn’t go into detail on what new services it had in mind or what carries it was working with at this time. Qualcomm says there is no strict timetable for using the spectrum so it could be a while before the UK sees new services.
