New EU rules to reserve 800MHz frequencies for high-speed mobile internet

The European Commission has implemented new rules for high-speed mobile internet services. EU members that release 800MHz frequencies as part of the 'digital dividend' resulting from the switchover from analogue to digital television broadcasting are now required to make the frequencies available for wireless broadband applications such as LTE or WiMAX.

Neelie KroesNeelie Kroes, EC Digital Agenda Commissioner, said "This decision paves the way for implementation of innovative broadband technologies and for the fast growing demand for wireless services to be met. I encourage Member States to take the necessary steps to implement the Decision, so that European businesses and citizens can take full advantage of the benefits of the switchover to digital TV."

The Commission says coordinated management of the 790-862 MHz spectrum band could give an economic boost of up to €44 billion to the EU's economy.
