Malaysia to issue 5G spectrum to consortium to reduce network build costs

Thursday 2 January 2020 | 13:44 CET | News
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has released, after consultation, its Final Report on the allocation of spectrum for mobile broadband services and 5G. The 700 MHz, 3.5 GHz and 26/28 GHz bands will be used for the initial deployment of 5G. The use of the 2,300 MHz and 2,600 MHz bands will be maintained per existing allocations until December 2021, for the maintenance of 4G, and a review of these bands will take place next year. The regulator expects commercial deployment for 5G in Malaysia to begin by the third quarter of this year.
