9 Feb 2006

German regulator RegTP has allocated so-called ‘E-GSM’ frequencies in the 900MHz range to existing mobile operators E-Plus and O2 Germany, which currently provide services exclusively in the 1800MHz band. The two cellcos have been assigned 2×5 MHz paired spectrum in the bands 880MHz-890MHz and 925MHz-935MHz, previously used by the military.
