Dutch govt wants multiband auction to start in June

Thursday 12 December 2019 | 14:42 CET | News
The Dutch government wants the Multiband auction to start in June, according to the provisional plans that are now being consulted. The auction contains the 700 MHz band that is important for 5G. There are some important intermediate steps in the works, but the most important dates have not yet been set. The UEFA Champions League wants 5G in all the cities where football games will be played in Euro 2020, but this is not looking too good for Amsterdam.
