The IMDA is yet to receive feedback from both the public and the telecoms industry regarding the best approach to 5G spectrum allocations and deployment. The baseline requirements for spectrum need to be determined in order to deploy the technology as soon as possible and enable a broader 5G ecosystem within the country.

During the first wave of spectrum allocations for 5G, the regulatory body plans to implement the 3.5G-Hz and 26-GHz onto the 28-GHz frequency bands. They have also stated that this amount will be enough for more than two 5G networks.

For the first phase of the allocation plan, mobile operators are expected to submit detailed proposals of their plans for 5G deployment. Following this, the proposals will be assessed with regards to their financial capacity and how they could meet baselines requirements like meeting performance targets.

IMDA chief executive, Tan Kiat How, stated: “This public consultation is an important step in IMDA’s plans to launch 5G mobile networks and develop a vibrant 5G ecosystem in Singapore.”

“I encourage interested parties to share your views with us. These insights will guide our regulatory approach and industry development efforts in ensuring Singapore’s connectivity infrastructure remains globally competitive in support of our Digital Economy ambitions.”
