Hong Kong operator HKT has acquired 30MHz of 5G spectrum in the 3.3 GHz band in the government's latest auction. The spectrum utilisation fee for this spectrum for 15 years totals HKD 199.5 million. Designed for indoor use, the 3.3 GHz band spectrum supplements 3.5 GHz band spectrum to provide extra capacity at heavily loaded indoor environments such as underground. Together with its existing 3G and 4G spectrum, HKT customers are now expected to have access to an upgraded service at outdoor as well as indoor locations.
