The UK has opposed new EU policies which would enable it to block mobile spectrum auctions deemed too expensive.
The European Commission wants to have power of veto as part of its effort to reform the telecoms sector.
The British government, in a memo sent to other European governments, said it believes the sector should be reformed, but refuses to support the EU's new measures including veto power over spectrum auctions believed to be too pricey or unfair.
Reuters reported that EU leaders would gather in Brussels on 24 October to talk about the plan for the first time.
However, opposition from governments could compel the EU to delay the plan from being implemented prior to European elections in May 2014.
The note also said Britain is seeking to accelerate the rollout of faster 4G "without affecting the competences of member states in this area", according to Reuters.
The note includes a warning against further progress to end roaming charges before the existing regulation to reduce the charges comes into full effect.
"Progress towards abolishing roaming charges should take place within the existing regulatory framework," the note said.
During the spectrum auctions in 2013, the UK made about £2.3bn compared to £22.5bn made in the 2000 auction for 3G.
