EU lawmakers approve plans for coordinated mobile broadband boost

European Union lawmakers on Thursday approved plans to coordinate the rollout across the bloc of the 700MHz spectrum band for wireless broadband by 2022 to provide faster mobile broadband and improved access to Internet services. The 700 MHz band (694-790 MHz), currently widely used for digital television signals and wireless microphones, can penetrate buildings and walls easily and cover larger geographic areas with less infrastructure than frequencies in higher bands. Successfully launching 5G in the European Union will require the efficient use of spectrum,” said MEP Gunnar Hokmark, who steered the legislation through European Parliament.
