Spain to unveil 26GHz plans by year-end

10 Sep 2021

The Spanish government is confident that it will be in a position to publish its plans for the 5G-suitable 26GHz band by end-2021. The timeline was revealed by Roberto Sanchez, the Secretary of State for Telecommunications and Digital Infrastructure, who noted that a portion of the band will be reserved for industrial 5G use, with the rest sold to the country’s telecoms operators. However, Mr Sanchez warned that there may not be sufficient time to allocate the frequencies this year, with that part of the process more likely to take place in 2022.
