EC to propose minimum 25-year spectrum licences - report

Wednesday 17 August 2016 | 09:27 CET | News
The European Commission is to propose that spectrum licences are granted for a minimum of 25 years to increase investment certainty for operators, according to an EU document seen by Reuters. The change will be part of the reform of the EU telecom regulatory framework, which the EC will announce in September and aims to have in place by 2018. Under the Commission's plan, licences would last at least 25 years and the Commission would have the power to adopt binding guidance on some conditions of the assignment process, such as the deadlines for spectrum allocation and spectrum sharing.
