As part of the coverage obligations of the award of 700/1500/2100 MHz, the operators are obliged to provide band-specific coverage.
These require a certain number of base stations (which have to meet a number of criteria) to be set up per band.
|Band||Date from||Base stations|
|2100 MHz||2021-12-31||2000 (*)|
(*) At least 75 base stations must be operated in each region ("Bundesland")
