New consultation on spectrum allocation

Montabaur. 13 May 2024. In its consultation published today on the upcoming allocation of frequencies in the low and mid-band range, the Federal Network Agency envisages an extension of the existing frequency usage rights for Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica. This extension is linked to a commitment by Telefónica to continue the transfer of 2x10 MHz mid-band spectrum to 1&1. In addition, the three incumbent network operators are obliged to make at least 2x5 MHZ of their low-band spectrum available to 1&1 for co-operative, joint use. The agency is calling for corresponding offers on fair terms.

"We are open to a co-operative solution. It is important that we can utilise a sufficiently large amount of frequency at market conditions in order to adequately supply our more than 12 million customers," said Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 AG. " Only then can we fully leverage the advantages of our innovative Open RAN technology and ensure the competitiveness of our daily expanding 5G network ."
