The Global System for Mobile Communications Association has asked Kenya's regulator to boost spectrum provision by at least 2 GHz to maximise the potential of 5G, The Standard reported, citing a new publication. The GSMA said this will place stakeholders at a head start in 2030, where the maximum advantages are hoped to be realised. This spectrum will ensure mobile operators can deliver the ITU targets of 100 Mbps download speeds and 50 Mbps upload speeds to meet future needs of consumers and businesses.
