EE Ltd v Office of Communications

Telecommunications – Mobile telephone networks. Following a direction by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport to revise the annual licence fees payable for 900MHz and 1800 MHz bands, so that they reflected the full market value of the frequencies in those bands, the Office of Communications (Ofcom) decided to increase the annual licence fee payable or those spectrum bands. The Queen's Bench Division dismissed EE's application for judicial review of Ofcom's decision on the basis, among other things, that Ofcom had correctly interpreted art 6 of the Secretary of State's direction.
