Telkom South Africa criticises ICASA's 5G licensing proposal

Friday 15 November 2019 | 11:04 CET | News
Telkom South Africa said communications regulator Icasa is making a grave mistake in the way it proposes to license access to 5G-suitable 3.5 GHz radio frequency, reports TechCentral. Icasa surprised the industry earlier this month when it published an Information Memorandum that not only includes the 700 MHz, 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz bands that the government had asked it to license, but also the 2.3 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands.
