A Profile of Spectrum Bands Used for Commercial LTE Deployments Source: Tolaga LTE Market Monitor 2012
Tolaga's Radio Spectrum Intelligence:
- Where spectrum in the 1800 MHz band is unallocated, regulators need to consider its expedited release in the context of existing operator holdings and LTE plans.
- If unused or underutilized spectrum is identified, regulators may assess opportunities for its reclamation and reallocation, depending upon demand.
- Where spectrum re-farming or flexible use is not permitted in the band, such restrictions should be urgently revisited to allow for technological neutrality at 1800 MHz, and indeed in other legacy bands.
