French spectrum agency ANFR said that the country's national frequency plan has been amended to reflect the government's decision to give Arcep priority status in accessing the 26 GHz band for 5G services. This is in line with recommendations at European level, advocating its use as one of the three 5G pioneer bands within the EU. The French telecom regulator has already been working with the industry towards this objective and has opened an award process for 26 GHz trial spectrum in January.
