Spain ready to launch 700MHz band auction in early 2019

Wednesday 31 October 2018 | 14:19 CET | News
The Spanish government is preparing to auction frequencies in 700MHz band for 5G mobile services "in the first few months of 2019", reports Europa Press, citing a recent speech by the country's president Pedro Sanchez. The aim is to begin a DTT migration to free up the 5G frequencies in January 2019 and conclude it by March 2020, ahead of the EU deadline of 30 June 2020. Around 8 million homes set to be affected, with the government looking to earn up to EUR 1.05 billion from its second digital dividend.
