The Hong Kong Communications Authority (CA) has published its new spectrum release plan (SRP) for 2020-2022 in accordance with the Radio Spectrum Policy Framework promulgated by the Government in April 2007.
According to the newly published SRP, the CA will release a maximum of 160MHz of spectrum in the 600/700MHz bands and 80MHz of spectrum in the 4.9GHz band to the market in 2021 in an on-going effort to release more spectrum to facilitate development of public mobile services, including 5G services.
In addition, there is 2900MHz of spectrum available in the 26/28 GHz bands for assignment. The latest SRP also covers the planned re-assignment of 15MHz of spectrum in the 850MHz band and 90 MHz of spectrum in the 2.5 / 2.6 GHz bands upon the expiry of the existing terms of assignment in 2023 and 2024 respectively.
