Swiss operator Salt may be driven to leaving the market if the spectrum auction planned for the second half of 2018 is conducted in an unfair manner, its CEO Andreas Schonenberger told NZZ am Sonntag. Salt considers itself to be disadvantaged by its competitor Swisscom, which Schonenberger claims is demanding an unfair, risky and far too complex auction format. Swisscom allegedly wants to acquire more spectrum than necessary this way, or to drive the bid prices up.
