4.9 GHz
Apr 28, 2021
by Toby Youell

A 5G-only band that could form an attractive alternative or complement to the C-Band in Asia, Africa, and the former Soviet Union. Its use in the West is limited by military and public safety considerations. Read more...

32 GHz
Apr 28, 2021
by Toby Youell

The 31.8-33.4 GHz band, also referred to as 32 GHz, does not currently have a global mobile allocation but can be used for 5G in the US. A worldwide 5G identification was discussed but rejected at WRC-19. Read more...

Above 90 GHz

by Toby Youell

Using spectrum above 90 GHz for mobile is in the experimental phase, perhaps for “6G”. There are no prospects for its immediate IMT identification. Read more...

28 GHz

The first mmWave to be deployed for 5G services: 28 GHz has already been assigned in several major economies. Read more...

3.7 – 4.2 GHz
Apr 16, 2021
by Toby Youell

A key 5G band in the US and Japan. These frequencies have been considered peripheral in the rest of the world, and are in some cases are available on a shared basis. US operators bought 280 MHz of this band in Q1 2021 for record prices. Read more...

A promising future 5G band, currently used around the world for 4G. Read more...

3.3 – 3.8 GHz (2020)
Jan 19, 2020
by Toby Youell

The premier mid-range global 5G band. Many countries plan to assign at least 300 MHz of spectrum in 3.3 - 3.8 GHz for 5G networks. In the short-run, usage is likely to be dominated by 4G for capacity constrained areas or FWA in rural areas. Read more...

3.7 – 4.2 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 17, 2020
by Toby Youell

A portion of this band is set to become a key 5G band in the USA, Japan, and possibly beyond. These frequencies are being explored in some countries as an extension of 4G/5G frequency bands from 3.3 – 3.8 GHz, sometimes to be made available on a shared and/or local basis. Read more...
