MIIT recently claimed it had drafted rules on China's radio frequency division, open for comment until September 30.
Below are some parts in the rules related to the International Mobile Telecommunication (IMT) system:
Mobile services deployed in the CHN34 3300-3400MHz band are certainly to be used on IMT system, limited to indoor use only in principle. (2017)
Mobile services deployed in the CHN35 4400-4500MHz band are certainly to be used on IMT system. IMT system shall not cause harmful interference to aeronautical radio navigation services. IMT system cannot be put into use until the relevant compatibility coexistence conditions are determined. (2017)
Mobile services deployed in the CHN37 4800-5000MHz band are certainly to be used on IMT system, the specific frequency allocation will follow the government departments. (2017)
According to the draft, the 3300-3400MHz band is basically confirmed as the 5G spectrum, the 4800-5000MHz band will allocated following the requirements of the operators, a new band, 4400-4500MHz, can be used for 5G system.
