Nkom says no need to keep 700 MHz spectrum for emergencies

Thursday 8 June 2017 | 11:58 CET | News
Norwegian electronic communications regulator Nkom is recommending that 700 MHz spectrum should be allocated in such a way that all the resources (2 x 30 MHz) can be used for commercial mobile networks. So said director Torstein Olsen at the regulator's 'Agenda' meeting on 07 June. Requirements for emergencies and civil contingencies should be taken into account, without dedicated spectrum being set aside for such use.
