MVNO Europe welcomes Portuguese 5G auction terms

Monday 23 November 2020 | 12:49 CET | News
MVNO Europe has welcomed the Portuguese National Communications Authority's (Anacom) regulation establishing the conditions for awarding spectrum in the 700 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2.1 GHz, 2.6 GHz and 3.6 GHz frequency bands. The association believes that the rules will promote competition in mobile and wireless communications, including 5G, and enable greater choice and quality of service. It welcomes in particular obligations placed on winners of some of the spectrum licences to provide access to their network under non-discriminatory conditions, as this is likely to benefit MVNOs.
