UK Science & Technology minister Ian Taylor has announced the winning applicants for licences to run public radio fixed access telecommunications services. British Telecommunications Plc and newcomer RadioTEL Systems Ltd, have both been granted 2GHz licences to enable them to provide service to customers in remote rural areas. 10GHz licences were awarded to Mercury Communications Ltd, Ionica Ltd, Scottish Telecommunications Ltd and National Transcommunications Ltd. These awards are designed to enable greater choice to be given to small and medium-sized businesses requiring fixed digital services. The Ministry says licences will be issued by the summer.
