Two Asian telecommunication giants gain approval to share 5G band

Two Asian telecommunication giants gain approval to share 5G band

Two telecommunication giants in Taiwan have obtained approval to share a 5G spectrum, based on their presentation of proof and according to the National Communications Commission's permission. Under the agreement, Asia Pacific Telecom and Far EasTone Telecommunications will be sharing its 5G spectrum up to 80 megahertz via the popular 3.5 GHz band, making it the first-ever arrangement in Taiwan.

The NCC approval has been granted for the 5G band sharing between the two companies. The commission has also stated that the authorization should also provide high-speed spectrum bands. Both the companies must also present proof that they could jointly manage the 3.5 GHz network, including its monitoring serves and established base station services. It is said that 2,000 base stations will be used to expand the signal.

Earlier, other telecommunication firms failed to acquire a 3.5 GHz band during the competitive 5G spectrum auction in Taiwan held in the year 2020. With both Asia Pacific Telecom and Far EasTone Telecommunications agreeing to share the 5G spectrum band, it will be easy to share the band with many countries. It is said that Asia Pacific Telecom will pay around 22 percent of the costs to manage and construct new stations.
