New radio frequencies for mobile communications: Health evaluation

In 2010 and 2015, the Federal Network Agency allocated additional frequencies for new mobile communication technologies. The Federal Network Agency’s terms of a licence do not specify a certain technology.

To use the frequencies most efficiently and to achieve fast internet access with a data transfer rate as high as possible, the new mobile communication standard “LTE” (Long-Term Evolution) is used.
