Dutch govt looks at shared access to licensed spectrum

Friday 9 December 2016 | 10:57 CET | News
The Dutch ministry of Economic Affairs has proposed including Licensed Shared Access (LSA) in the spectrum plan. This means the licensee of a spectrum range must allow shared access for temporary or local applications. The Telecom Agency will examine the interference issues and develop a number of scenarios for use. According to the ministry's latest spectrum policy paper, tests are underway in the 2.3-2.4 GHz band, which is normally reserved for maritime radio. Another variant is TV White Space, the unused frequencies in broadcast spectrum.
