Arcep consults on changes to 3.5 GHz spectrum award for fixed LTE in under-served areas

Tuesday 28 May 2019 | 11:57 CET | News
French regulator Arcep has published a consultation document proposing a number of changes to the award process for the chunk of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band allocated to fixed LTE services. The release of this spectrum is part of the government's strategy to improve the availability of faster internet access in under-served areas by 2020. Under current plans, the allocation process is scheduled to close at the end of 2019, to enable the regulator to firm up the quantity of 3.5 GHz spectrum available in the forthcoming 5G auction.
