Dutch govt publishes DotEcon advice on upcoming spectrum auction

Thursday 11 October 2018 | 16:20 CET | News
The Ministry of Economic Affairs (EZ) is working on the next mobile auction. Consultancy DotEcon has given advice, some of which has been made public. EZ is now designing the auction process: what software to use and how the bidding process should proceed. DotEcon supplied the software package for the 2010 and 2012 auctions. New choices will have to be made for the new auction, which will sell spectrum in the 700 MHz, 1400 MHz and 2100 MHz bands. These bands are all different, but there are cross connections that will influence the strategy of mobile operators.
