Detail of outcome

The document sets out the Government’s response to the December 2015 Alternative HAN Solutions consultation.

Alternative HAN is the name given to the solutions that will be needed to provide a HAN in those premises that are unlikely to be served by either the 2.4GHz or 868MHz solutions without range-extending equipment.

The consultation response concludes on the design of the Alternative HAN arrangements and provides updated legal drafting reflecting these conclusions. The legal drafting will be laid in Parliament alongside publication of this response document and, subject to successfully completing the Parliamentary process, will be brought into legal effect in summer 2016.
