Murray RSGB spectrum manager just posted this:
An interesting item on the value of our microwave spectrum is below from Ofcom

Back in 2014/5 we retained access to 3400-3410 MHz in the PSSR-induced licence changes (courtesy of a well-known Primary User we share with)

The rest of 3.4GHz is prime real estate for 4G/5G mobile and went for quite a lot in the 2018 auction.
However a couple of segments were already allocated to Mobile use and below the ongoing renewal fee of ~£400k/pa /MHz has been decided
Given we have access to 10 MHz, the value of that is now caluculated at £4.3m/year! Imagine the price for 23cms where we have access to 85MHz!!

Surely this is enough to persuade everyone that use it or lose it really does apply and get on the air this weekend - whether it is raining or not!

Maybe we only have access to the spectrum because we don't use it.

If we used all our shared spectrum 24/7 I am sure the primary users wouldn't be too happy.
