5G, the next generation cellular mobile technology, is expected to increase mobile connectivity and support new services and as yet unimagined innovations. It will be central to future economic growth, employment, education, transport and more. It is anticipated to facilitate transformative change for New Zealanders and New Zealand businesses.


Radio Spectrum Management has prepared a consultation document addressing the possible 5G spectrum bands and their future allocation. It also asks for feedback on any other barriers to the roll out of 5G in New Zealand.


Interested parties are invited to comment on the questions raised by the consultation document and other matters related 5G in New Zealand. Submissions are welcome up to Monday 30 April 2018.
