ITU Secretary-General Houlin Zhao said, The WRC-15 decision represents a landmark in the development of broadband mobile on a worldwide scale, regardless of location, network or terminal used.

It goes a long way in enabling bridging of the digital divide, while fully protecting the other services currently operated in the band.

Francois Rancy, Director of the ITU Radio communication Bureau said, The global harmonisation of the 694-790 MHz frequency band that has been decided by WRC-15 paves the way for manufacturers and mobile operators to offer mobile broadband at an affordable price in currently underserved areas.
