[...] And we will take this success further. Under the EU's just-agreed radio spectrum policy programme, a European spectrum inventory will identify at least 1200 Megahertz of harmonised spectrum for wireless broadband by 2015. As it stands, we have not – yet – identified where that extra spectrum will come from. But, as you know, discussions on the possible allocation or co-allocation of the 700 Megahertz band for mobile broadband have already started in the past weeks in Geneva. A few Member States are already considering moving ahead in this band. So we must start working on a common EU approach to ensure the efficient and coherent use of this band across Europe.
