There's been a lot of talk here about the spectrum that 5G technology will use. With the official release of the first 5G-NR standard, network operators all over the world are conducting trials with a view to commercializing it within the next 2-3 years. Different countries have proposed and are studying from 600 MHz to 7
United States: The United States is leading in 5G research and development. On the lower end of the spectrum, they use the 600 MHz (2 x 35 MHz) band, the 3100-3550 MHz band, and the 3700-4200 MHz band. On the higher end of the spectrum, they use the 27.5 – 28.35 GHz band and the 37 – 40 GHz band. US mobile operators have already conducted tests in these frequency bands. The FCC has also opened up the 64-71 GHz spectrum for 5G, however, there hasn't been much activity in this band yet. Click here to view US 5G spectrum allocations.
Europe: EU countries are using both low-band and high-band in initial 5G tracking. In the lower bands they use the 3400-3800 MHz band and in the higher bands they use the 24.25-27.5 GHz band. Click here to view country-level 5G spectrum allocations in Europe.
China: In China, trials are ongoing in the 3300-3600 MHz band, with possible additional use of the 4400 – 4500 MHz and 4800 – 4990 MHz bands. On higher frequencies, China is considering using the 24.25 – 27.5 GHz band and the 37 – 43.5 GHz band.
Japan: They are looking at using spectrum 3600-4200 MHz and 4400-4900 MHz in the lower band and 27.5-28.28 GHz in the higher band.
South Korea: South Korea is one of the first countries to conduct 5G technology research and development, and its goal is to launch 5G technology during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in February 2018. Although they have not yet launched commercially, they have made significant progress in the commercialization of 5G technology. technology. They are currently conducting trials in the 26.5 – 29.5 GHz band.
