71 – 76 and 81 – 86 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 15, 2020
by Toby Youell

Both 71 – 76 GHz and 81 – 86 GHz are technically under consideration for an IMT identification at WRC-19 but the ITU regional organisation has asked for them to be withdrawn. Some countries are focussing regulatory efforts for the band on fixed links. Read more...

Above 90 GHz (September 2019)
Jan 15, 2020
by Toby Youell

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

90 GHz and above
Nov 30, 2018
by Patrick Gahan

There is some use of spectrum around 90 GHz for backhaul services but the further development of services in in these higher bands is currently in the experimental stage. It has the support of some stakeholders and regulators but most are concentrating on lower 5G bands. There are no ITU… Read more...

Above 100 GHz
Jun 15, 2018
by Patrick Gahan

Regulators are starting to draw up rules for the use of bands above 100 GHz, even though work on potential commercial uses is still at a research stage. Most stakeholders do not see such high frequencies spectrum as being a priority and for 5G interest is focussed on lower bands… Read more...

4.5 GHz
Jan 12, 2018
by Richard Handford

A number of countries are looking at 4.5 GHz  as a possible 5G band. Japan, its most serious supporter, plans to allocate the frequencies in March 2019. Other interested countries include China, Korea, Myanmar and Taiwan. Read more...

3.5 GHz (2017 entry)
Nov 09, 2017
by Kane Mumford

3.5 GHz received a global mobile allocation at WRC-15, but a shift in focus means it is now being seen as both a 4G and potential 5G band. The band has been selected for the two major initiatives designed to drive 5G: the Citizen’s Broadband project in the US and… Read more...

40 – 50 GHz (2017 entry)
Oct 17, 2017
by Patrick Gahan

7.7 GHz in 40-50 GHz was identified for possible 5G usage at WRC-15 with wide support from both the mobile industry and its traditional foes. With the wide bandwidth available that makes the chosen bands very promising prospects. Industry support is concentrated at the lower end of the band Read more...

100 – 200 GHz
Oct 12, 2017
by Patrick Gahan

There is some interest in deploying 5G in these bands but work in this area is at an experimental stage. Most stakeholders do not regard this as a priority and some important players think frequencies above 100 GHz are inherently unsuitable. (This entry has been replaced but the Above 100… Read more...

80 – 90 GHz (2017 entry)
Oct 12, 2017
by Patrick Gahan

81-86 GHz is likely to be identified as a future 5G band - it is being studied by the ITU and has been proposed for release in the USA. Few voices have been raised in opposition but the band lacks strong advocates in the vendor community. Read more...

10 – 20 GHz (2017 entry)
Aug 31, 2017
by Patrick Gahan

Bands in this range are not being studied for possible 5G identification at WRC-19 and most regulators who supported an identification have since recanted. There is huge opposition from the satellite industry but 5G trials in 10-20 GHz are continuing with one operator seeking to leverage existing backhaul usage. Read more...
