Icelandic watchdog expects to allocate 26 GHz spectrum for 5G in 3 to 5 years

Monday 6 July 2020 | 13:46 CET | News
The Icelandic Post and Telecom Administration (PTA) has published general information to educate the public concerning 5G. It said spectrum in the 700 MHz and 3.6 GHz bands have already been allocated in Iceland for the new standard of service. The 26 GHz frequency band is expected to be allocated for 5G in the next three to five years, but it is short-lived so the distance between transmitters is smaller and the network denser, making it better suited in urban areas, although more bandwidth is achieved and thus speed and throughput are higher.
