Monday 21 December 2015 | 16:44 CET | News
New Zealand's Commerce Commission received an application from Spark New Zealand Trading (Spark) seeking clearance to acquire the management rights to 70MHz of radio spectrum in the 2,300MHz band from Craig Wireless Spectrum Operations (Craig NZ) and Woosh Wireless Holdings Limited (Woosh NZ).
The management rights being acquired by Spark were not used since being awarded in 2007 and will expire on 31 December 2016 if they are not used to provide a service. Prior to completion of the transaction, Spark will be required to enter into a management rights agreement with the Crown committing it to offering a fixed wireless broadband access service.
