Lithuania consults on 3.4GHz-3.8GHz band for 5G use

5 Oct 2018

Lithuania’s Communications Regulatory Authority (RRT) has published a new public consultation on the development of 5G mobile communication services in the 3400MHz-3800MHz frequency range. The regulator has invited telecoms industry participants and other interested parties to submit their views and opinions on the plans and conditions for the reallocation of the 3400MHz-3800MHz band for 5G by 5 November.

‘We are announcing this survey by continuing the preparations for the introduction of the new generation of terrestrial mobile radio communications 5G in Lithuania in the spring,’ commented the director of the RRT’s Radiocommunication Department, Augutis Cesna, adding: ‘As the results of the first survey showed, the market shows interest in using the 3400MHz-3800MHz band to develop its existing infrastructure and provide even more advanced, innovative and high-quality services to consumers. In consultation with the market we seek to reconcile the needs of the public and private sectors and prepare for the forthcoming frequency auction, which we are planning to publish in 2019.’
