EU Strategy

The priorities of the European Commission (EC) are the availability of broadband Internet Access to the all EU households and the coverage of 5G networks of all major transport routes and urban areas by 2025 (5G Action Plan and communication Connectivity for a Competitive Digital Single Market - Towards a European Gigabit Society).

EC has determined 700 MHz, 3.6 GHz and 26 GHz as the main frequency bands for the implementation of 5G technology. The usage of the 3.6 GHz and 26 GHz frequency bands for 5G shall be allowed no later than 31 December 2020 and the 700 MHz band no later than 30 June 2020 (with the possibility of delay up to 2 years).

At least one larger city must be covered by the end of 2020 and continued 5G coverage of urban areas and main terrestrial transportation routes must be achieved by 2025.

According to the EECC (European Electronic Communications Code - (EU) Directive 2018/1972), which entered into force in December 2018 and has to be transposed into national legal frameworks, the Member States must license the 3.6 GHz and 26 GHz frequency bands for 5G by 31 December 2020.

Under Decision (EU) 2017/899, the 700 MHz band must be allowed for 5G until 30 June 2020, with a possibility of 2 year grace period.
Within the scope of 5G Observatory, the European Commission monitors the development of the 5G market, including testing and other actions taken by industry and Member States representatives. The 5G Observatory focuses on development in Europe, with monitoring the most important events worldwide (USA, Japan, China, South Korea).
