Poland launches 5G consultation

9 Jul 2018

Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (Urzad Komunikacji Elektronicznej, UKE) has opened a consultation into the allocation of spectrum for future 5G mobile services. The regulator is proposing the sale of spectrum in the 700MHz, 3.4GHz-3.6GHz, 3.6GHz-3.8GHz and 26GHz bands. Parts of the bands in question are currently in use for various telecoms and TV services, with the watchdog proposing a reorganisation and reallocation of some spectrum prior to the auction. Comments on the plans are being accepted until 8 August.
