According to an unconfirmed report by Vedomsoti, Russia’s Ministry of Communications (MinSvyaz) is considering a plan to hold separate Long Term Evolution (LTE) tenders in at least ten regions. The tenders, which are expected to take place in mid-April 2013, will see the watchdog auction off spectrum in the 2570MHz-2620MHz band.
