Italian WiMax providers including Linkem, Tiscali, TIM, Go Internet and Mandarin have requested a 6-year extension to licences to use frequencies in the 3.4-3.6 GHz range, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. The country's communications watchdog Agcom is currently conducting a consultation on the request which is now due to expire on 21 February with the regulator set to agree to the extension, albeit with some restrictions, and include it in the forthcoming auction for 5G spectrum, said the report.
