LONDON - Thursday, November 19th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Officer, GSMA, reiterates the benefits of agreeing a co-primary allocation for mobile and broadcast in the sub-700MHz spectrum band at this month’s World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15) in Geneva:
