ANCOM opens preliminary consultation on use of 2300MHz band

23 Oct 2020

Romania’s National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has launched a preliminary public consultation on whether to allocate spectrum in the 2300MHz-2335MHz range for mobile broadband services. The regulator notes that its preliminary analysis will consider the following issues: the degree of harmonisation of the 2300MHz band at international and European level; the availability of equipment in the band; its technical characteristics; the situation regarding allocation of the 2300MHz band in Europe; and the availability of spectrum in the 2300MHz-2335MHz range in Romania, taking into account existing applications in this and adjacent sub-bands with which mobile/fixed communication networks must coexist. Interested parties are invited to submit their comments by 20 November.
