Swiss market to get fourth player in 5G auction - report

Monday 4 February 2019 | 11:22 CET | News
The Swiss market will get a fourth market player beside the current big three, Swisscom, Sunrise and Salt, in the imminent 5G auction, reports NZZ. Although there are no official comments, there are indications that the fourth operator may come from the UK. There are no official comments either on the participants or even the time schedule, except that it was due to run in January. However, it is an open secret in the industry that the auction started a few days ago and will probably come to an end soon.
