Is Asia keener than Europe on millimetre wave bands?
Feb 07, 2020
by Richard Handford

The statistics would suggest so. A new report from the European Commission’s 5G Observatory says that Italy is the only country in the 27-member European Union that has assigned spectrum in the 26 GHz band. Compare that with Asia, where South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan have awarded 26… Read more...

3.3 – 3.8 GHz
Jan 18, 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...

32 GHz
Jan 16, 2020
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 (September 2019)

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...
