Ofcom identifies 26 GHz as pioneer band in 5G report

Thursday 9 February 2017 | 11:24 CET | News
Ofcom has published a report on 5G spectrum in the UK, with a review of the type of services 5G will be able to enable and how the regulator must manage the limited supply of spectrum. In short, Ofcom said the first wave of commercial products should come out in 2020 though initial pre-commercial deployments are expected to start from 2018. The regulator wants to make 26 GHz the "pioneer band" for 5G in Europe and is actively promoting the spectrum as the priority band for global harmonisation.
