Dear East Sussex County Council,

Without Predjudice

I'm a telecommunications engineer and part of my work has been working systems affected by clearance of the 700Mhz frequency band in East Sussex for future 5G transmissions.

Can you please advise what your intentions are for this frequency band in the near future if this is not for 5G?

Yours sincerely,

Tom Smart

East Sussex County Council

Dear Mr Smart,
 
Thank you for your further email. I have checked with the relevant
departments in the Council and have been advised that the work
you referred to is not something that East Sussex County Council has
commissioned. We therefore do not hold the requested information.
 
I am sorry that we are unable to help you any further with your enquiry.
 
Kind regards

Dear Mr Smart,
 
Further to my recent emails we have now been able to obtain clarification
from Arqiva's press office.
 
They have confirmed that the agreement between Arqiva and Eastbourne
referred to in the article you cited was for public wifi in
Eastbourne rather than 5G, and was a contract taken out with Eastbourne
Borough Council.  
 
I would therefore suggest that you redirect your enquires to Eastbourne
Borough Council who should now be able to provide you with a response your
enquires. 
 
To reiterate East Sussex County Council has not commissioned or
received requests to install 5G.
 
I hope this information is helpful in your enquiries.
 
Kind regards,

Dear Mr Smart,
We reiterate that this is a contract that Arqiva have with Eastbourne

themselves.
