Sweden to go ahead with 700 MHz auction of frequencies not kept for TV

Wednesday 25 October 2017 | 12:07 CET | News
Swedish telecoms regulator PTS said it has updated its analysis regarding the 700 MHz frequency auction and is seeking comments by 15 November. It is now proposing to allocate 2 x 10 MHz less than it stated in its 2015 study. The watchdog said many of its previous recommendations remain unchanged, and it considers the conditions for allocating resources in the band as good.
