Citymesh pleased with BIPT decision on 5G licenses

Wednesday 5 February 2020 | 15:50 CET | News
Belgian operator Citymesh said it was pleased with the decision by Belgian regulator BIPT to extend existing 2G and 3G licenses and issue temporary 5G licences for the 3.5 GHz band. Citymesh chief solution officer Ward Van Ooteghem said that making the 5G spectrum accessible to all operators was a "good thing" and underlined the value of the company's initial 5G-ready private networks. The executive added that the decision means the first tests with public 5G networks can start.
