Plans to auction off radio spectrum for 4G mobile services have been delayed by UK watchdog Ofcom.

The auctions, which were due to be held in early 2012 after a consultation, will now take place at the end of 2012. Ofcom said the arguments in the responses to its consultation had persuaded it to delay the process.

It said in a statement, “We received a number of substantial and strongly argued responses to this consultation.” Ofcom added that, although a further round of consultation is needed, the delay might not affect when 4G services are launched, as the spectrum needed will not be available until 2013.
