We developed rules to allow the use of television white space devices, and consulted on them in September 2014.

The Television White Space (TVWS) interim licencing regime has been suspended indefinitely. No new applications will be accepted and the scheme is closed. The existing licences will not be cancelled at this stage, pending future decisions.
