Dutch 5G licences proposal suggests 3 bidders, little scarcity, short auction

Monday 9 December 2019 | 11:26 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
The Dutch government has started the consultation on the spectrum auction planned for Q2 2020. The most important news is the minimum proceeds of EUR 915 million. This is on the high side, suggesting the government expects only three bidders, little scarcity and a short auction. This will likely keep the total cost for operators under EUR 1 billion. We expect the 3.5 GHz auction, planned for 2022, will also raise less than EUR 1 billion, but there is more uncertainty for that band.
