Galileo has started offering Early Operational Capability and is expected to be fully operational in 2019. The Galileo GNSS solution operates in the following frequency bands:

Galileo E1 Band: 1559 MHz to 1591 MHz with a center frequency of 1575.42 MHz
Galileo E6 Band: 1260 MHz to 1300 MHz with a center frequency of 1278.75 MHz 
Galileo E5 Band: 1164 MHz to 1214 MHz with a center frequency of 1189 MHz
  • Galileo E5a Band: 1164 MHz to 1189 MHz with a center frequency of 1176.5 MHz
  • Galileo E5b Band: 1189 MHz to 1214 MHz with a center frequency of 1201.5 MHz
