The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda said they will “mandate a temporary moratorium on the deployment of 5G” pending the completion of a study and the issuance of a final determination.

A spokesperson said, “In acknowledgement of the various concerns raised about the deployment of 5G mobile technology [5G], the RA will mandate a temporary moratorium on the deployment of 5G for all ICOL & COL holders, [existing and new licencees], pending the completion of a Radio Frequency Study [RF Study] and the issuance of a final determination.

“As previously stated, the RF Study will include the opportunity for the public to provide their input to the RA prior to making its final determination.”

Bermuda puts brakes on 5G, licences new operators

The Regulatory Authority of Bermuda issued licences to two new operators and temporarily banned deployment of 5G services pending the result of a probe into the technology.

In a statement, the regulator said Wave Bermuda and Paradise Mobile had been awarded Integrated Communication Licences allowing them to “establish, construct and operate one or more electronic communication networks”.

It also issued a separate licence to Cable & Wireless Network Services to provide connectivity to the island through submarine cables.

Bermuda, which has a population of less than 65,000 based on UN estimates, is already served by operator group Digicel and ATN International-owned One Communications. GSMA Intelligence estimates for Q2 placed their respective connection numbers at around 36,000 and 41,000.
