Description: To make the 800MHz and 2.6GHz spectrum bands available, by clearing existing users and holding an auction for new licences, for the competitive provision of next generation wireless broadband services across the whole of the UK as soon as practically possible (extending across as much of the UK as possible by end 2013), with minimal restriction, whilst appropriately mitigating and managing the risk of harmful interference to neighbouring spectrum users. To deliver SCAP within the SCAP budget set by Government

Variance text: Large variance due to return of HO project funding to HMT and underspend/return of contingency for radar remediation scheme.
Whole Life Cost: £247.43m
WLCost text: The whole programme has come in under budget as risks have been managed and potentially expensive scenarios (such as failures of equipment or planned remediations) have not occurred. Therefore contingencies have not been needed.
