BIPT is consulting on a proposal to open up the 3.8-4.2 GHz band for 5G private networks.
There has been growing momentum in Europe to use the 3.8-4.2 GHz band for private networks. Most recently, Norway’s regulator Nkom announced it would provide free licences in the band for business to test their own private 5G networks.
European’s technical agency CEPT is currently working on technical conditions to harmonise the 3.8-4.2 GHz band and the EU’s spectrum advisory group RSPG has previously endorsed the band.
Interested parties have until October 21 to submit their comments on BIPT’s proposal.
