Nkom says 5G unlikely to be commercially available by 2020

Friday 20 March 2015 | 10:46 CET | News
It is optimistic to think 5G communications could be available as early as 2020, according to Norwegian telecoms regulator Nkom's frequency director. So said John-Eivind Velure, according to an excerpt appearing the Inside Telecom website from a longer article. There appears to be a consensus among technology developers that 5G requires the 'millimetre band', which is spectrum from 6 MHz and 300 MHz, said the excerpt. The comments reflect a paper presented by Velure in January.
