A License Exempt (Part-15) Spectrum Measurement Study was recently carried out
for the UK Regulator Ofcom involving 20 sites across England.

The study appears to show comparitively little usage of 2.4 GHz (page 30 of the
summary). This is almost certainly down to the locations chosen for monitoring
and the short range (< 1000 feet) of license exempt consumer products. Had the
monitoring stations been been sited in a typically urban household, built at 20
homes to the acre, I'm sure they'd have picked up plenty of activity.

The results of the study can be seen at
