E-Plus can use 1800MHz for mobile broadband

29 Jun 2012

Germany’s telecoms regulator, the Federal Network Agency (FNA, also known as Bundesnetzagentur or BNetzA), has approved an application from E-Plus to allow the mobile network operator to use its 1800MHz spectrum for the provision of mobile broadband services, such as Long Term Evolution (LTE). Until now the frequencies had been reserved for GSM services only. As noted in TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, in May 2011 E-Plus filed an application to use its 900MHz frequencies for mobile broadband services in rural areas and the regulator gave its approval to the plan the following December. E-Plus is the German mobile unit of Dutch telecoms operator KPN.
