We should go further to improve connectivity in the EU and this is one of the main objectives of our new Electronic Communications Code and 5G action plan presented in September last year.”The policy of using the 700MHz band exclusively for mobile broadband was raised by the EC in February 2015, with its first proposal presented in May 2016. Following discussions within the European Council and European Commission an agreement was struck between all parties during December, subject to final sign-off from the Council and Parliament.
