Dutch govt delays decision on spectrum auction again

Tuesday 30 April 2019 | 15:19 CET | News
The Dutch government has delayed again its white paper on mobile communication policy, saying it needs more time to study regulator ACM's advice. Telecoms secretary Mona Keijzer told parliament the paper would not be ready by the end of April as expected. The policy, which includes plans for the next spectrum auction, had already been delayed several times in the past year.
