The Spanish government will finally hold its auction for frequencies in 700MHz band in May and not in the first quarter of 2020 as expected, reports Expansion, citing the newly-appointed Minister of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calvino. The auction of 5G-ready spectrum in the 700MHz band has been postponed until just before the EU deadline of 30 June 2020 due to delays in setting up the new left-wing coalition government of Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez and operator concerns about the tender conditions.
