Portuguese operators want to limit 5G auction to EUR 100 mln per bidder

Friday 24 January 2020 | 16:31 CET | News
Telecom operators operating in Portugal believe the auction for 5G licences, scheduled for April, should limit costs for each operator at EUR 100 million, reports Jornal Economico.

They argue that the higher the amount disbursed in the auction, the lower their capacity to invest in 5G commitments.
