Spain to tender extra 20MHz of frequencies in 3.5 GHz band

Tuesday 12 January 2021 | 11:13 CET | News
Spain's Ministry of Economic Affairs has confirmed that 20 MHz of frequencies in the 3.5 GHz band will be auctioned for the deployment of 5G networks before the end of February. The government previously tendered 200 MHz of frequencies in the 3.4-3.8 GHz band back in 2018 and the latest auction will allow it to reorganise the band so that all operators have contiguous frequency blocks and can harness the full potential of 5G technology, said the ministry.
