Nos initiates precautionary measures to stop 5G auction

Friday 13 November 2020 | 16:04 CET | News
Portuguese operator Nos is planning to request two precautionary measures, one to try to get Dense Air's 5G licence revoked and the other to force a change in the 5G auction regulations announced by Anacom. The news was announced by daily Expresso and confirmed to Economia Online by an official Nos source. If either measure is accepted by the courts, the auction of frequencies for 5G mobile telephony would be suspended until the regulation is reformulated, or the state could invoke "public interest" to continue the process.
