Call for Inputs on making the 26 GHz spectrum band available for 5G

Ofcom has today published a Call for Inputs on the 26 GHz spectrum band, to inform its programme of work to make this spectrum available for future 5G services.

5G will be able to deliver more data, to more devices, and more consistent service quality than previous technologies. Spectrum is critical to 5G, and we want to ensure that spectrum is not an inhibitor of early 5G rollout.

The 26 GHz band, which covers 3.25 GHz of spectrum between 24.25 GHz and 27.5 GHz, is being prioritised across Europe as the first high frequency band for 5G. This spectrum – known as ‘mmWave spectrum’ – offers high data capacity and speeds over short distances.

They are seeking input from stakeholders to inform our authorisation approach to 26 GHz, taking into account the likely demand and the timelines for 5G equipment availability.

Today’s document also sets out their current thinking on which other bands we will prioritise for 5G, and confirms their intention to start working on making available spectrum in the 66-71 GHz band.
