LTE/4G also in 900/1800 MHz, in Albania

 Tirana, 1 September 2015 – The abolition of restrictions on the use of technological frequency bands 900/1800 MHz and 2100 MHz entered into force. Removing technological limitations enables the use of the frequency spectrum based on the principle of technological and service neutrality.

In application of the obligations arising from the new legal provisions, from 1 September, all operators authorized by AKEP for the use of the frequencies in the 900/1800/2100/2600 MHz bands can build their own systems based on 2G GSM technologies, UMTS-3G, 4G LTE, WiMAX, to provide quality services and the highest standard, especially broadband. In this context, in order to maximize the effectiveness of the use of spectrum, also the spectrum reorganization was enacted, creating a continuous spectrum to all authorized operators.

It took nearly two years to complete the whole process, including research, planning, consulting with stakeholders. The whole process has been transparent, impartial and open to the public media. Currently, it has become possible for the National Frequency Plan of Albania to be harmonized with the CEPT (European Conference of Post and Telecommunications).
