Open Spectrum UK
OpenSpectrumUK is an ad hoc coalition of non profit organisations engaged in community wireless networking and promotion of license free access to public airwaves.
The availability of spectrum for license-exempt use has enabled us to develop cost-effective, user owned networks to provide Internet access and localised information services for the benefit of many thousands of UK residents.
Open Spectrum UK was convened in January 2005 in order to make a submission to the Ofcom Spectrum Framework Review. This submission was signed by 10 UK non-profit organisations, engaged in community wireless networking and communications policy issues. Open Spectrum UK is convened by John Wilson (co-founder Arwain.net) and Julian Priest (co-founder Consume.net).
