Nkom consults on 900MHz draft auction

10 Jun 2015

Norwegian telecoms regulator the National Communications Authority (Nkom, formerly NPT) has launched a public consultation on a proposed auction for frequencies in the 900MHz band. The regulator is aiming to sell two blocks of 20MHz spectrum in the 880MHz-915MHz/925MHz-960MHz bands in the summer of 2016 with a minimum price of NOK140 million (USD18.27 million) per block. The spectrum will become available from 1 January 2018, with the frequencies to be freed up as a result of the expiry of licences held by NetCom (TeliaSonera) and Telenor Norge. Final conditions for the planned tender are expected to be published in mid-October. All interested parties are invited to post their comments by 10 August 2015.
