Russian regulator plans new 5G spectrum plan, may postpone auction - report

Thursday 20 February 2020 | 14:38 CET | News
The Russian State Radio Frequencies Commission (SRFC) plans to approve a new scheme of distribution of 5G bands in the country, reports Comnews.ru. As a result, the earlier planned auction of 5G spectrum in 2020 could be annulled. Operators may instead receive recommendations for using the 5G standard on their current spectrum holdings, and new bands can be used only for testing.
