Baltic frequency usage conference in Finland
Helsinki is hosting a conference to discuss the usage of the 790-862 MHz frequency band in Baltic region.
Half the band is currently empty in some regions due to its current use by the Russian Military.
It is hoped that Russia will move out of the band to free it for the use of mobile and Internet services as allocated for Europe by the ITU World Radio Regulations Conference in 2007.
A total of 10 countries are attending the June conference, which seeks to find a resolution to the problem.
