Friday 30 July 2021 | 16:14 CET | News
The Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA) is inviting interested parties to provide feedback on its proposals for 5G spectrum bands by 20 August. The authority has singled out the 700 MHz, 2.6 GHz, 26 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands as meeting the requirements for low, mid and high band categories of spectrum required for 5G capacity and coverage requirements. ZICTA said the 3.5 GHz has emerged as a key focus for 5G in several other countries and it is engaging stakeholders directly to ascertain whether or not they consider this band to be vital for 5G development in Zambia.
