The mobile phone frequencies and which frequencies are used in Germany
An important part of any mobile phone specification is its operating frequency bands. The supported frequency bands determine whether a specific handset is compatible with a specific network operator. And you must know the cell phone bands used in Germany when you buy a cell phone blocker in Germany.
2G, first introduced in 1992, is the second generation of mobile phone technology and the first to use digital encryption of calls. 2G networks were the first to offer data services and SMS text messaging, but their data transfer rates are lower than those of their successors.
As in almost all countries of Europe, Germany uses GSM frequency bands as the main telephone communication frequencies. The two cellular communication networks are D-Netz and E-Netz, which consist of D1 and D2 standards from D-Netz E2 with e-plus standards from E-Netz. The D-Netz network uses the GSM900 frequency band for its work, while the E-Netz uses the GSM1800 frequency band for its work.
There are 4 major German telecom operators and mobile operators: T-Mobile Germany, Vodafone D2, O2 Germany and E-Plus Mobifunk. All of them use GSM, 3G and 4G frequency bands to provide German people with different types of wireless communication.
3G networks follow 2G one and offer faster data transfer rates and are the first to enable video calls. This makes them particularly suitable for use in modern smartphones, which require a constant high-speed Internet connection for many of their applications.
German 3G is represented by 2100MHz UMTS band and is gradually added to 900MHz band.
4G is the fourth generation of cellular communication standards. It is a successor to 3G and offers ultra-broadband internet access for mobile devices. The high data transfer rates make 4G networks suitable for use in USB wireless modems for laptops and even home Internet access.
4G LTE in Germany operates primarily on 800MHz frequency range, although other frequencies will be added later including LTE 1800MHz, LTE 2600MHz.
