Operators can provide frequencies for 5G at no charge. This issue is currently being considered by the Ministry of Digital Development of the Russian Federation, reports TASS with reference to the head of the department Maksut Shadayev.
According to Shadayev, the initiative to remove fees for frequencies belongs to the ministry.
“Since we use the 4.8-4.9 GHz band, which requires a much higher frequency of installation of base stations than in the classical 3.4-3.5 GHz band, we have now come up with the initiative to cancel the spectrum fee”, – said the minister.
In early December last year, it became known that the state highlight additional frequencies for testing 5G networks. And later in Moscow opened Russia’s first industrial test site with 5G infrastructure.
