Europe could wave goodbye to 3G before 2G disappears, the GSMA has claimed, as operators look to refarm existing holdings to feed growing LTE data usage.
Spectrum is the lifeblood of the mobile industry, with operators ever eager to get their hands on more. But a former Ofcom executive has claimed that instead of suffering from a bandwidth deficit, huge amounts of their holdings go unused every day.
