Lithuania’s Communications Regulatory Authority (RRT) has launched a public consultation on plans for the development of mobile communications services in the 1452MHz-1492MHz frequency band. The regulator notes that the band is suitable for data transmission services, including 5G communication. Interested parties have until 18 September to submit comments on the plans, following which the RRT said it will seek to allocate the frequencies through a spectrum auction procedure. Under current auction plans, each winning bidder will be granted the right to use spectrum in only one of the following ranges: 1452MHz-1472MHz or 1472MH-1492MHz.

‘Radio frequencies are a resource of our country – we strive to use them efficiently and create value for Lithuanian users. Having assessed that the 1452MHz-1492MHz radio frequency band can be used for the development of mobile communication, we plan to announce an auction,’ said Darius Kuliesius, deputy chairman of the RRT Council, adding: ‘Mobile operators will be able to participate in it and, on the basis of acquired frequencies, further increase the development of electronic communication networks and services. The more spectrum operators have, the higher the quality of connection they can provide to users.’
