Taiwan to launch 4G spectrum tender in October

Friday 21 April 2017 | 11:51 CET | News

Taiwan's National Communications Commission (NCC) plans to launch a 2100MHz and 1800MHz spectrum tender in October this year, DigiTimes reports. The NCC will offer total bandwidth of 150MHz for provision of 4G mobile services through an open bid tender.

The tender will include two rounds. In the first round, the 150MHz will be divided into 15 units each with bandwidth of 10MHz. Interested parties will be able to bid for the bandwidth they need, without designated spectral location of bandwidth. Winners will then decide on the spectral location of their acquired units through mutual negotiation as part of the second round. If the winners cannot reach an agreement, NCC will arrange a few sets of spectral location of the winners' acquired units for winners to choose via bidding.

To avoid the operators’ dominance of frequency band units, the bandwidth acquired by a single operator will not exceed one-third of total bandwidth of released band units. In addition, NCC will ask the winners to gradually set up base stations in remote areas.
