|Have you made 900Mhz, 1800Mhz, 2,5-2,69 GHz and 3,4-3,8 GHz frequency bands available and authorised for 3rd and 4th generation mobile services use?||-||the 900 and 1800 MHz bands are being addressed by the MBSA process referenced above. The use of fixed and nomadic applications is permitted in the 3.4-3.8 GHz bands – see FWALA Guidelines document 06/17R7 at http://www.comreg.ie/publications/revised_guidelines_to_applications_for_fwala_licences.583.104096.p.html for example. The use of mobile applications in the band is pending awaiting the approval of the statutory instrument by the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources. The band 2.5-2.69 GHz is currently used by MMDS services (an ECS) and is currently undergoing a public consultation process with a view to potentially releasing the spectrum for other ECS applications – see http://www.comreg.ie/publications/consultation_on_future_use_of_2_6_ghz_radio_spectrum_band.583.103962.p.html and http://www.comreg.ie/_fileupload/publications/ComReg1209.pdf|
|Have you authorised (or plan to authorise in 2012) for use ("licensing") of the digital dividend (800 MHz band) for wireless broadband communication??||Yes||see http://www.comreg.ie/radio_spectrum/multi-band_spectrum_award.713.html|
|Have you implemented the transfer or leasing of right of use in the harmonised bands?||-||ComReg is currently conducting a public consultation on spectrum trading – see http://www.comreg.ie/publications/spectrum_trading_in_the_radio_spectrum_policy_programme_rspp_bands.583.104156.p.html|
