The European Commission has just launched a public consultation on the introduction of technical harmonisation measures at EU level in the terrestrial 2 GHz band (1900-1980 MHz, 2010-2025 MHz and 2110-2170 MHz). The use of this band in the EU is currently restricted only to UMTS, whereby parts of it remain largely unused. The collected feedback will be assessed in the process of preparing a Commission Implementing Decision in 2012, supported by an Impact Assessment. The consultation closes on 18 January 2012.
