Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it plans to start the auction for permits for spectrum in the 700 MHz band on 01 December 2016, with a deadline for applications of 01 November. One of the aims of the auction is to fill coverage gaps. The watchdog will be auctioning four permits for 2 x 5 MHz and one permit for 2 x 10 MHz. The one for 2 x 10 MHz comes with an obligation to provide coverage for voice and broadband services where there currently are none.
