5G mmWave Has Not Reached Most of Europe Yet


5G mmWave spectrum is a great complement to the mid-band spectrum. It is mainly used to deliver 5G for eMBB use cases in high-capacity areas, support the use of 5G FWA to provide super-fast broadband to home and offices, and support 5G applications that require high capacity and low latency. While 5G mmWave networks have been successfully launched in some countries, it still needs to achieve more scale to reduce deployment costs, increase the choice of affordable devices, and facilitate greater adoption. It is a positive sign to see that momentum is building in Europe and other regions, as this should help to inform operators’ considerations of the role that mmWave will play in their deployments as well as when to initiate or accelerate investments in the technology. A significant amount of work is required before 5G mmWave networks become a reality across Europe.

Sub-6GHz is Still the Most Popular Band but There is a Need to Stimulate Demand for 26GHz


There is much noise on mmWave deployment abroad, Europe s…
