Spain launches 700MHz consultation

29 Nov 2017

Spain’s Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda (Ministerio de Energia, Turismo y Agenda Digital, MINETAD) has launched a public consultation regarding the future introduction of 700MHz spectrum. The watchdog – which refers to the spectrum in question as the ‘second digital dividend band’, following the prior distribution of 800MHz spectrum across Europe – expects 700MHz frequencies to come to prominence as the push towards 5G mobile technology gathers pace. Submissions are welcome until 19 February 2018.
