Consultation on Licensing of Satellite Earth Stations

Published On:Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Interest has been expressed in operating satellite earth stations on the Isle of Man. The earth stations will require the use of spectrum to transmit data to satellites. In this consultation, the Communications Commission proposes a process for awarding licences on the Island for that purpose.

The process encompasses the issuing or modification of an appropriate Telecommunications Act 1984 licence and the recommendation to Ofcom that a Wireless Telegraphy Act (2006 of Parliament) licence is also granted.
