Italian senators question 5G spectrum extension to WiMax providers

Monday 22 October 2018 | 09:24 CET | News
A group of Italian senators from the Five Star Movement (M5S) have asked industry minister Luigi Di Maio to probe the request for a 6-year extension to licences owned by WiMax providers including Linkem, Tiscali, Go Internet, Mandarin and TIM to use frequencies in the 3.4-3.6 GHz range, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. The move could threaten Fastweb's EUR 150 million deal to acquire 40 MHz of spectrum in the 3.5 GHz band from Tiscali as well as its Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) division, said the report.
