France announces rules for 5G spectrum auction

Tuesday 16 July 2019 | 10:34 CET | News
French regulator Arcep has started consulting on a draft procedure setting out the rules for the forthcoming 5G auction of 3.4-3.8 GHz spectrum. The public consultation, which will run until 04 September, will enable Arcep to finalise the terms of the award, ahead of the auction in the autumn. Meanwhile, the government will receive separate advice by the end of September on the reserve price for the available frequencies. The procedure will enable the country's four network operators to acquire up to 310 MHz of spectrum from 2020, under 15-year licences with a possible 5-year extension.
