EU plans to coordinate a key mobile spectrum in Europe

The 700MHz band is widely used for television signals, with the EU proposal splitting the spectrum to make it useable for audiovisual as well as data transmissions.
European Union regulators proposed to roll out a key mobile spectrum across the 28-nation bloc to improve access to internet services and technologies, including in remote areas.

Currently, EU nations have different approaches to managing radio frequencies.

“This band is the sweet spot for both wide coverage and high speeds. It will give top-quality internet access to all Europeans, even in rural areas, and pave the way for 5G, the next generation of communication network,” EU commissioner Andrus Ansip said in a statement.

The 700MHz band can penetrate buildings and walls easily and cover larger geographic areas with less infrastructure compared with frequencies in higher bands.
