After December 31, 2024, the use of the 2 520-2 670 MHz radio frequency band for the broadcasting satellite service can not solicit protection from harmful interference caused by other services. In the event that the termination of the use of this band for the broadcasting satellite service is carried out prior to 31 December 2024, there will be an existing BSS user relocation process in accordance with the applicable provisions. Radio frequency band 2 500-2 690 MHz is preferred for the implementation of the International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) system from 1 January 2025.
