The government of Zimbabwe has revealed plans to auction spectrum for Long Term Evolution (LTE) 4G wireless services as it looks to raise the USD173 million needed to complete its TV digitisation programme by the June 2015 deadline. The LTE frequencies will be made available for ‘broadcasting services’ the Harare Financial Gazette quotes information minister Jonathan Moyo as saying, but no details were given of which spectrum would be sold off or when the sale was expected to take place.
