Carriers go seven rounds on first day of 700MHz auction

Tuesday 17 November 2015 | 08:40 CET | News
France's 700 MHz spectrum auction began on 16 November, with all four carriers taking part and six 5 MHz blocks up for sale. Bidding started at EUR 416 million per 5 MHz block, and rose to EUR 451 million after seven rounds, said Telecom regulator Arcep. The auction is not yet complete as the total amount of spectrum requested by the candidates still exceeds six blocks. The process will resume on 17 November with the eighth round at EUR 456 million per block.
