Today, a tender on the sale of radio frequencies for the launch of communication of the fourth generation was held in Kyiv. Biggest mobile operators participated in the auction. In total, 7 lots in the 2,600 MHz band, which is used to improve coverage, were put up for sale. The next stage of the tender, during which the expected radio frequencies in the 1800 MHz band will be realized, will take place soon. These frequencies are used all over the world to deploy 4G networks.
“Not so long ago, the world has been praising significant technological progress in Ukraine after the launch of 3G. A very short time has passed, and we can already talk about a transparent and open procedure for launching 4G networks. This is, in fact, a revolutionary event for Ukraine, especially after so many years of innovative stagnation,” Oleksandr Danchenko, chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Informatization and Communications, comments.
4G technology is a high-speed mobile communication, the advantages of which will be felt not only by ordinary citizens. The introduction of 4G is an incentive for the development of not only the ICT sector, but also of other markets using IT technologies: the agricultural sector, the industrial complex, and others.
