Delivering “further” rural and indoor coverage and “faster” 5G networks by embracing the government’s 5G market expansion spectrum sharing model

A mobile band as high as 3.6 GHz presents a natural challenge to 5G coverage extending much beyond dense urban areas. Then the fragmentation of spectrum under the current 4G regulatory model hits users outside of dense urban areas a second time by most single operator cells lacking the full 100 MHz channel width needed for peak performance. The government’s proposed market expansion spectrum sharing model is the first initiative of substance to create a 5G regulatory framework fit for purpose to meet these new challenges. 5G Further Faster (5G FF) is an innovation common interest group brought together by the IET to present the case for the market expansion model.
