T-Mobile Austria challenges terms of 4G auction

Friday 2 August 2013 | 15:11 CET | News
T-Mobile Austria has filed a challenge to the terms of the 4G auction scheduled for September, reports Reuters. The company claims that the regulator has no rights to sell the frequencies as outlined in the terms because some of these still belong to T-Mobile. Some of the spectrum is being offered from 2016, but T-Mobile insists that it has the rights to this spectrum until end-2019. T-Mobile's lawyer Ewald Lichtenberger told Reuters that the issue needed to be clarified before the auction as it would create bigger problems later.
