Czech government contemplates keeping 700 MHz spectrum in state hands

Wednesday 24 October 2018 | 11:18 CET | News
The Czech government has an alternative plan on the table, proposing not to award licences in the 700 MHz band to mobile operators, but to build a state-owned 5G network and lease it to mobile operators, reports MobilMania.cz. The original plan was to award frequencies from the so-called second digital dividend in an auction in 2019. The new proposal would also comply with the requirements of the Ministry of Interior, which wants to assign part of the spectrum to the security forces.
