Shared use of wireless infrastructures and spectrum resources
In a paper published in 2001 addressing possible shared use of wireless infrastructures the Bundesnetzagentur set out the conditions under which sharing would not raise concerns. It specified what the President's Chamber had said in the UMTS award conditions.
In its decision of 12 October 2009 on the award of spectrum in the bands at 800 MHz, 1.8 GHz, 2 GHz and 2.6 GHz for wireless access for the provision of telecommunications services (reference: BK 1a 09/002, Order 59/2009, Bundesnetzagentur Official Gazette 20/2009) the President's Chamber determined that these conditions would be updated.
The regulatory framework for permissible infrastructure sharing required modification in light of technological advance and flexibilisation. Additionally, the Bundesnetzagentur has given consideration to further possibilities of cooperation.
The paper about the conditions under which sharing would be allowed with the title ”Shared use of wireless infrastructures and spectrum resources” was published in the Bundesnetzagentur Official Gazette of 11 August 2010, No 15/2010, Communication 485/2010).
