Mobile vendors predict an unstoppable rise in Mobile data consumption, and have already obtained mobile allocations in the 700 MHz and 800 MHz bands. Administrations are now being asked to consider a further allocation in the remaining part of the UHF band, below 694 MHz, which is used in most countries for DTT. Some Mobile proponents claim that they can share the band with broadcasting. However, technical studies carried out in ITU-R - and confirmed by recent real cases - do not support this claim.
