900

3GPP Band 8 (900 MHz) was used globally for 2G GSM voice and basic data mobile communications. Technology-neutral licensing later enabled 900 MHz to become a mainstream spectrum choice for mobile broadband using 3G HSPA / HSPA+ / DC-HSPA+, particularly due to the limited bandwidth required by previous 2G GSM systems. These networks were later refarmed to 4G, often retaining channel configurations.
