The European Commission to enhance mobile internet services by coordinating mobile spectrum

The European Commission has outlined a proposal to boost European mobile internet services, by better coordinating the 700 MHz band. The proposal consists of two components: making the 700MHz band ‘effectively available for wireless broadband use under harmonised technical conditions’ and prioritising the sub-700MHz band for ‘the distribution of audiovisual media services to the general public.’ The proposal is part of the strategy to establish a Digital Single Market.
