Spain’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation (Ministerio de Asuntos Economicos y Transformacion Digital) published its new National Chart of Attribution of Frequencies (Cuadro Nacional de Atribucion de Frecuencias, CNAF) on 27 December 2021 – incorporating the 26GHz millimetre wave (mmWave) band for the first time. (Note: the CNAF is the regulatory framework that establishes what frequency bands are reserved for.) A proposed tender for the 26GHz band is one of the measures included in the government’s Plan de Recuperacion, Transformacion y Resiliencia (Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan) 5G roadmap.

In addition, the CNAF has reserved a 20MHz block in the 2300MHz-2400MHz band for industrial applications under the self-provision regime. 10MHz of this spectrum will be used by public service networks for the distribution of electricity, gas or water, the regulator added.
