Macau to include 5G in technology-neutral licenses

26 Apr 2018

The Macau SAR government does not plan to have a separate license for 5G services, and will instead include 5G in its planned new technology neutral licenses for mobile service providers.

The director of Macau's Post and Telecommunication Bureau Derby Lau Wai Meng told the Macau News Agency that its proposed new communications convergence legislation will include 5G.

The new legislation would replace Macau's current basic telecommunication law as well as by-laws governing the various telecoms licenses that have been allocated in the city.

In addition, the regulator has prepared changes aimed to provide infrastructure support for operators pursuing 5G deployments and redefined some service standards, with the goal of providing more favorable conditions for 5G operators.

According to the report, the new changes will give more powers for operators to deploy 5G as well as more powers to the government to supervise these deployments.
