Regarding the future use of the 3,6-3,8 GHz band in Sweden

15/03/2006

According to the Swedish Frequency Plan (PTSFS 2005:4) there are two usages in the band 3,6-3,8 GHz. These are Fixed Service and Fixed Satellite Service (space -> earth).

The future use of the band 3,6-3,8 GHz in Sweden will primarily be Point-to-Multipoint services (BWA) based on geographical defined licenses. The first of these licenses are planned to be issued by open invitation during 2006.

To facilitate the use of BWA in this band, no new licenses for Fixed Satellite Service on a primary basis will be issued. This means that new users of Satellite Service in the band 3,6-3,8 GHz have to accept interference from the primary BWA systems in this band.
