NPT to consult on reallocation of 900MHz spectrum

26 Sep 2014

The Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority (NPT) has announced that a 2×20MHz block of 900MHz spectrum will become available from 1 January 2018, with these frequencies expected to be freed up as a result of both Telenor and NetCom’s licenses for them expiring. As such, the regulator has said it has begun preparatory work to establish the framework for awarding the spectrum, saying it is keen to assign the frequencies before the existing concessions expire. To that end, the NPT is seeking comments from interested parties on the matter, and will conduct meetings in Lillesand later this year to discuss its plans.
