Beeline relinquishes spectrum in 900MHz, 1800MHz bands

5 Apr 2018

Uzbekistani mobile operator Beeline has reportedly transferred a portion of its frequency allocations to rivals Ucell (Coscom), Universal Mobile Systems (UMS) and Uzbektelecom (Uzmobile), writes. The Republican Radio Frequency Council (RRFC) ordered the operator to transfer roughly half (47%) of its spectrum in the 900MHz and 1800MHz bands to other cellcos by 1 October 2017 to ensure even distribution among the players. The transition period was subsequently extended to 1 April 2018. In addition, the RRFC has allowed tech neutrality in the two bands.
