Now what is 700MHz ?

The 4G spectrum at 700MHz called 4G Extended. This provides better coverage in rural locations and is more effective at penetrating walls and buildings. The 700MHz spectrum used to be reserved for free-to-air TV (specifically UHF channels 52 through 69), the old analogue network that’s now been shut down and as such has been relicensed to us to use on mobile networks.
