Further 4G bands permitted in 2100MHz range

11 Jul 2017

Russia’s Ministry of Communications (MinSvyaz) and the State Commission for Radio Frequencies (SCRF) have finalised a decision to allow 4G LTE network services (and other future mobile platform evolutions) in additional bands currently utilised for 3G W-CDMA (UMTS) services, by granting these blocks technology-neutral status – augmenting a list of other lower and higher-band frequencies already available for LTE/tech-neutral services. The latest tech-neutral bands are: 1920MHz-1980MHz/2110MHz-2170MHz (paired FDD) and 2010MHz-2025MHz (unpaired).
