Norwegian govt lowers 900 MHz cap after Telia complaint

Monday 27 February 2017 | 11:59 CET | News
The Norwegian Department of Transport and Communications said it has lowered the ceiling for new 900 MHz spectrum allocation, on competition grounds. The cap has been reduced from 2 x 20 MHz to 2 x 15 MHz, and it will instruct regulator Nkom accordingly. The frequencies will be assigned following an auction which the ministry hopes will take place before summer 2017.
