In 2011, the Swedish regulator (PTS) invited all interested parties to apply for licenses to use radio transmitters in the 790-862 MHz frequency band. The licenses are service and technology neutral but all licensees are expected to provide Mobile Broadband (MBB) services using the LTE standard. In order to protect the Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT) services provided in the adjacent bands from interference, PTS imposed a number of technical conditions on the licensees. Here, a brief overview of these technical conditions is given, and a measurement campaign in order to investigate the interference between MBB and DTT services is reported.
