Modified at:29 September 2020
26 GHz band frequencies are currently assigned to Arcep, and used by radio-relay systems. The public consultation being launched today seeks to obtain stakeholders' feedback on the framework governing 26 GHz band licences for radio-relay systems. It is concerned in particular with the feasibility of and methods for migrating these systems to other frequency bands, to be able to make the band available for 5G.
