The 2300 MHz band has been allocated worldwide for IMT under TDD (NR band n40 or LTE band 40).
The band, already in use in Asia for some time, is now being awarded in Europe as well. Because of usage in numerous countries (including China and India), the band is supported by a variety of user devices.
The band, or sub-bands within it, has already been assigned in several European countries. Examples of assignments include
The band has been previously used in Austria for wireless camera applications by broadcasting companies and public-sector organisations. Sub-bands have also been used for military telemetry. In the best case, the current prospect is to use the 2300–2360 MHz frequency range, or 60 per cent of the band, for broadband applications, based on a sharing concept (LSA or static geographic restrictions). This frequency range could be awarded in 10 MHz blocks for TDD.
In 2021 a further consultation regarding this frequency band was conducted.
