Friday 21 September 2018 | 08:43 CET | News
Italy has attracted bids totalling EUR 4.15 billion after six competitive days of bidding for 5G spectrum licences in the 694-790 MHz, 26.5-27.5 GHz and 3.6-3.8 GHz bands, according to a short update from the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE). The amount raised so far has already exceeded the EUR 3.95 billion raised by the 4G multi-band auction held back in 2011, with the spectrum made available in the 3.7 GHz alone having reached EUR 1.94 billion, with bids from Wind Tre, Telecom Italia (TIM), Vodafone and Iliad.
