Arcep seeks feedback on making 1.5 GHz band available for 5G services

Tuesday 31 July 2018 | 11:25 CET | News
French regulator Arcep has launched a public consultation to gather stakeholders' views on three main topics relating to how the L-band (1.5 GHz) can be made available for 5G services, as outlined in its recent roadmap. This coincided with the publication of the thirteen contributions received on the previous consultation on the 26 GHz band, which confirmed interest in using this spectrum to deliver 5G and will now be followed up with further work to make it available going forward.
