Spectrum 26 GHz

The 26 GHz mobile radio band is intended for 5G as NR-band n258. It ranges from 24,250 to 27,500 MHz.

End of August 2019 a consultation regarding this frequency range ended. The results of the consultation are available here.

Article 54 of the EECC stipulates that member states shall allow the use of at least 1 GHz of the 24,25 - 27,5 GHz band, provided that there is clear evidence of market demand and of the absence of significant constraints for migration of existing users or band clearance.

On April 24th, 2020 the 26 GHz Decision (EU) 2020/590 was adopted.

Within the 26 GHz mobile radio band there are radio relay bands.

The sub band 26.500 MHz to 27.500 MHz (bandwidth 1 GHz) overlaps with the 28 GHz band (NR band n267).
