UK court rejects operator challenge over spectrum auction rules

LONDON, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Two of Britain’s leading mobile operators, BT’s EE and Three, failed in a legal challenge on Wednesday to force a rethink of the rules for the upcoming auction of mobile spectrum.

Regulator Ofcom has set limits on how much spectrum individual operators can buy in a bid to maintain competition. Market leader EE objected to the restrictions and operator. Three said the rules did not go far enough.

However, a London court rejected the appeals on Wednesday morning. (Reporting by Paul Sandle; writing by Kate Holton; editing by Estelle Shirbon)
