On 5 November 2012, the European Commission issued a Decision intended to add an additional 120 MHz to the radio spectrum portfolio available for 4G technologies. The paired terrestrial 2 GHz band is currently used solely for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) wireless communications. The Decision mandates Member States to open the relevant spectrum by 30 June 2014.
