The UMTS frequency bands are radio frequencies used by third generation (3G) wireless Universal

Mobile Telecommunications System networks. They were allocated by delegates to the World
Administrative Radio Conference (WARC-92) held in Málaga-Torremolinos, Spain between February 3,
1992 and March 3, 1992.

[1]

Resolution 212 (Rev.WRC-97), adopted at the World Radiocommunication

Conference held in Geneva, Switzerland in 1997, endorsed the bands specifically for the International
Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000) specification by referring to S5.388, which states "The
bands 1,885-2,025 MHz and 2,110-2,200 MHz are intended for use, on a worldwide basis, by
administrations wishing to implement International Mobile Telecommunications 2000 (IMT-2000). Such
use does not preclude the use of these bands by other services to which they are allocated. The bands
should be made available for IMT-2000 in accordance with Resolution 212 (Rev. WRC-97)." To
accommodate the reality that these initially defined bands were already in use in various regions of the
world, the initial allocation has been amended multiple times to include other radio frequency bands.
