Taiwan to award 4G spectrum by end-Q3

Thursday 26 February 2015 | 21:30 CET | News
Taiwan's National Communications Commission (NCC) plans to release the 2,500MHz and 2,600MHz frequency bands for the provision of 4G service use, Taipei Times writes. The NCC added that the auction of these two bands is scheduled to take place at the end of Q3 2015. NCC Chairperson Howard Shyr said that the commission's officials would explain the rules of the auction and other relevant matters in March. The official said that some of the frequency blocks are currently being used by WiMax operators. These operators will be able to continue to use the spectrum if their licences are renewed.
