Estonia and Latvia sign a coordination agreement for 3.6 GHz

The new cross-border agreement ensures better 5G coverage without interference.

The agreement was made during the 18th annual meeting of the Baltic communications regulators in Palanga, Lithuania. There were several issues on the table, from 5G market developments to allocating the necessary spectrum for drones.

This annual meeting provides an opportunity to discuss changes in our institutions and regulated sectors, as well as the challenges that lie ahead to ensure the development of new technologies in our countries and the greatest benefit to consumers. Because of the tense situation in Ukraine this year, cooperation among Baltic region regulators in the field of communications, particularly spectrum management, has become critical,” said Jūratė Šovienė, Chair of the Council.

Estonia and Latvia signed a coordination agreement for the 5G pioneer band 3.6 GHz. The agreement allows each country to provide stronger coverage to consumers at border areas without interfering with the communication of the neighbouring country.

“Such cooperation meetings are of great value in order to learn from each other’s experiences and share best practices. Our common goal is to ensure good communication and faster development of networks for consumers in the Baltic region”, said General Director of Estonian regulator TTJA Kristi Talving.
