A total of 156 replies were received from individuals, SMEs, large enterprises and industrial associations, global and regional standardisation organisations and technical standard setting fora, public authorities, research centres. 

Following the decisions made at the ITU’s WRC in November 2015, the European Commission (EC) released its Proposal for a decision on the use of the 470-790 MHz frequency band in the EU.
