Hong Kong's secretary for commerce and economic development and the Communications Authority (CA) have jointly launched a public consultation on the arrangements for assignment of an additional 80 MHz of spectrum in the 4.9 GHz band (4.80 – 4.96 GHz) and the spectrum utilisation fee (SUF) for the provision of public mobile services. Following the launch of 5G services in Hong Kong in April this year, OFCA plans to supply additional 5G spectrum to the market. The CA proposes to auction the additional 5G spectrum.
