South Korea Released 6 GHz Spectrum Band for Wi-Fi


The Ministry of Science and ICT (MSICT) of Korea announced in mid-October that it will release 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi use cases. It is a decision followed by the MSICT’s consideration of amendments of technical standards, which proposed new rules for 6 Gigahertz (GHz) Wi-Fi in mid-2020. The regulator allows 1.2 GHz of spectrum between 5,925 Megahertz (MHz) and 7,215 MHz for unlicensed use.
