5G’s ‘Golden Band’: Exploring the use of 700 MHz spectrum

image for 5G’s ‘Golden Band’: Exploring the use of 700 MHz spectrum
In the past few years, we have seen 5G deployed around the world in many different forms, using many different bands of spectrum. Each of these bands has specific characteristics, from variable signal propagation to disparate data speeds, making them more or less suitable for certain types of deployment. As a result, based on the spectrum available to them, operators have adopted different strategies to achieve coverage for their customers.    Take the world’s three leading countries in 5G, for example: China, South Korea, and the US. Chinese and South Korean operators have typically focussed their 5G rollouts on mid-band spectrum (primarily 2.6 GHz and 3.5 GHz), which offers a happy medium between speed and propagation.    In contrast, for the US, current rollouts have been focussed on mmWave spectrum (>…
