Dutch 5G auction not expected before 2020 - Agentschap Telecom

Tuesday 5 June 2018 | 12:44 CET | News
The Dutch 5G spectrum auction will probably take place in 2020 instead of in the autumn of 2019, according to a letter from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate (EZK) to Parliament. The reason behind the postponement is the decision the European Commission must take regarding the proposed merger between MNOs T-Mobile Netherlands and Tele2 Netherlands. It became clear in early February that the merger might postpone the auction but now this is almost certain.
