LTE and mobile broadband frequency bands

The World mobile spectrum package includes two deliverables:

  • A yearly updated database: an excellent tool to benchmark the different markets on a country level and to identify current and future LTE frequency bands. It presents the current status of the main mobile broadband frequency bands and the issue of the auction processes including price paid by the operators, frequency bandwidth and detailed information on the regulatory status.
  • A yearly updated status report delivering an overview of the latest developments in the spectrum field including the main evolutions of the regulatory framework, spectrum sharing issues and new radio technologies, the 700 MHz band status, mobile spectrum in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, North and South America, and Africa Middle East, and spectrum valuation.
