Eavesdropping station Burum is commissioning 3GHz frequencies for 4G in the way




The listening post in the Frisian village Burum is the expansion of 4G frequencies in the north of the country in the way. The station is used by the AIVD, DISS and the US government to intercept satellite communications.

The monitoring station, which is on the National Signals Intelligence Organisation part, or NSO , the use of frequencies has reserved in the 3GHz range. Other parties is prohibited in the Netherlands to start using frequencies within the band within a certain area. This area covers all over Almere, Zwolle and a small part of Amsterdam. The European Union and telecom providers have, however, focused on these frequencies their arrows as part of the development of 4G technology. 4G channels 42 and 43 are respectively 3400 and 3800MHz and users would offer speeds up to 1 gigabit per second. That requires GSM Helpdesk on the basis of a report from Telecompaper.

This obstacle to the further development of 4G would also have an impact on the prospect of the introduction of 5G, according to Telecompaper. Europe Netherlands can not order in this case to release the frequencies. The government could in fact rely on an exception in the regulation which states that can stop the issue of licenses on behalf of the state. Since the frequency bands used by intelligence and security, that argument is made.
