Radio frequencies allow images, sound and information to be transmitted over large distances by radio waves. They are the basis of mobile communications. European companies are among the largest global players in this sector. This success is largely explained by the development of a European GSM technical standard. Around two billion people now use mobile phones complying with the European GSM standard.

In order to support the internal market for wireless services and to promote innovation in electronic communications, the European Union plans to regulate and coordinate the use of the radio spectrum.
