The EU is opening up 120 MHz. of spectrum currently used for 3G services for deploying 4G services. European carriers such as Vodafone (VOD), France Telecom (FTE), Telefonica (TEF), and Telecom Italia (TI), who have generally dragged their feet on deploying 4G, should be glad to hear that. Earlier this year, the EU signed off on freeing up spectrum used for analog TV services for 4G purposes by Jan. '13.
