Current spectrum allocations of TDD frequency band in China, Japan and Taiwan are shown below.

In China, Band38, Band40, Band34 and Band39 are assigned as TD-LTE or TD-SCDMA. China Mobile gets access to 130MHz of spectrum (1880-1900 MHz, 2320-2370 MHz, 2575-2635 MHz), China Unicom gets 40MHz (2300-2320 MHz, 2555-2575 MHz) and China Telecom has 40MHz (2370-2390 MHz, 2635-2655 MHz) for TD-LTE operation. 

In Japan, a part of Band41 is assigned as AXGP (TD-LTE) and WiMAX, while PHS uses a part of Band39.

In Taiwan, a part of Band41 is assigned as WiMAX. Also, a part of Band39 is used by PHS and 3G TDD system.
