Vodafone KK wants lower 3G radio spectrum

28 Apr 2005

Vodafone KK has applied to Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications for licences to operate W-CDMA experimental radio stations on the 1.7GHz frequency band. The request is the first time an existing 3G mobile operator has applied for a field test licence on this frequency band. If it receives the concession, Vodafone KK plans to conduct field tests for around six months in Chiba.
