GSMA lauds Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore for harmonizing spectrum for mobile broadband | TelecomLead.com | RCS News | Scoop.it
Tom Phillips, chief government and regulatory affairs officer, GSMA, said GSMA welcomes the decision by Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore to align with the Asia Pacific Telecommunity (APT) band plan for the future allocation of the 700MHz (Digital Dividend) spectrum band to mobile. “This week’s decision is an important step forward in meeting the fast-growing demand for mobile data and a positive signal to the wider mobile ecosystem in the Asia Pacific region. Alignment with the harmonized APT band plan will create important economies of scale, enabling citizens in these countries to enjoy affordable handsets and equipment and will also provide seamless cross-border and international roaming. Further, the 700MHz band is ideally suited to provide extended mobile broadband coverage to rural and remote areas where fixed infrastructure is often unavailable and also has ideal characteristics to improve indoor coverage in saturated urban areas,” Phillips said. Click headline to read more--
