Last 800 MHz auctions held in Western Europe, France and Austria relatively expensive

Friday 27 December 2013 | 13:03 CET | Author: Kamiel Albrecht | Background
The last four countries in Western Europe have auctioned 800 MHz spectrum for 4G mobile broadband services. In Austria and Norway, the auctions also included 900 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum. In Austria, the yields were four times the minimum bids without a new entrant, and in Belgium and Finland, the proceeds were equal or only slightly higher than the minimum bids. In Norway a new mobile operator will enter the market after acquiring spectrum, Telco Data. This article is a continuation of earlier Telecompaper Research Briefs about the auctions of 4G spectrum in 17 Western European countries.
