Mobile Telecom Juggernaut Secures Another Band


The mobile telecom juggernaut continues to steam ahead. It has recently been announced that the European Commission and the European Broadcasting Union have come to a negotiated settlement that will free up the 700 MHz band for mobile broadband usage. This is on top of the 800 MHz band that has already been issued in a number of European countries. Of course, mobile telecoms have access to the 900 MHz, the 1,800 MHz, the 2,100 MHz, the 2.5/2.6 GHz band, and the 3.5 GHz band. It is quite remarkable once you consider the European mobile telecoms marketplace just started out with the 900 MHz band (some could argue for the case for analog networks such as NMT and AMPS, but the true mobile telecoms revolution started with the TDMA/GSM standards).
