5G Global Spectrum Report:
At present, GSA is aware of 71 countries (or territories, special administrative regions, disputed territories and dependencies) actively considering suitable spectrum for 5G (whether dedicated to 5G or made available through a technology-neutral licence). This figure excludes such initiatives in relation to spectrum that is being allocated primarily for the provision of 3G or 4G services. Some countries have multiple initiatives underway.
Important changes since the last report include:
This report is based on data collected and stored in the GAMBoD database
GAMBoD, the GSA Analyser for Mobile Broadband Data, is a unique search and analysis tool we developed to support our Members and Associates with the most up to date information on 4G & 5G devices networks, technologies and spectrum. Search results are presented as a list, or as a spreadsheet, or in charts that may be inserted into documents or presentations, subject to accreditation of GSA as the source.
The LTE Devices database can be searched by supplier, form factor, features, peak downlink and uplink speeds, and operating frequency. The NTS (Networks, Technologies & Spectrum) database can be searched by MBB technology, feature, UE category, downlink speed, spectrum bands used and can be segmented by region. Results are presented as a list or in charts. Charts may be inserted into documents or presentations, subject to accreditation of GSA as the source.
GAMBoD is a resource dedicated to promoting the success and growth of the MBB industry and ecosystem and is fully available to all employees of GSA Executive and Ordinary Member companies and GSA Associates who subscribe to the service.
