Dutch Parliament calls for answers on 3.5 GHz availability for 5G

Thursday 8 February 2018 | 11:27 CET | News
The Lower House of Parliament in the Netherlands has reacted very critically to reports that the rollout of 5G in the Netherlands is being hampered by the fact that the 3.5 GHz band is not available. Dutch CDA, D66, PvdA and VVD parties have asked questions in Parliament about that band for 5G and about whether the Amsterdam ArenaA will be provided with 5G coverage in time for the European Football Championship in 2020. The Lower House will meet Secretary of State Mona Keijzer on 15 February to talk about telecom. The issue is now high on the agenda.
