ComReg consulting on use of 26GHz band for 5G

27 Jan 2021

Irish telecoms regulator the Commission for Communications Regulation (ComReg) has launched a consultation on a study that it commissioned related to spectrum in the 26GHz band. ComReg’s consultation examines, among other things, how it might best organise and effectively manage the band in order to ensure the efficient use of spectrum for the continued provision of existing services, while also appropriately catering for any future demand for wireless broadband services ‘in a timely and effective manner’.

The regulator has invited interested parties to comment on the matters discussed in the study, and has set a deadline of 23 February 2021 for submissions.
