5G to boost infrastructure-sharing agreements - OECD

Friday 12 July 2019 | 10:26 CET | News
The practical and cost considerations of rolling out new 5G networks will prompt countries to increasingly foster infrastructure-sharing agreements, according to a wide-ranging new study from the OECD. The report, entitled “The Road to 5G Networks”, said such agreements are inherent to the use of mmWave spectrum, with MNOs expecting substantial savings by sharing 5G base stations and other infrastructure.

The report covers national strategies and 5G trials in 18 OECD countries, discusses what 5G will mean for communication markets and competition, and asks whether it will be able to meet the growing requirements of the digital economy. “The extent of 5G benefits will ultimately depend on the speed at which 5G will be rolled out, and how quickly it is taken up by both businesses and consumers,” said the OECD.

It also looks at regulatory issues that may arise from 5G, including streamlining rights of way (to deploy massive numbers of small cells and backhaul connecting the cells), efficient spectrum management, deployment and access to backhaul and backbone facilities, as well as new forms of infrastructure sharing.
