Greece offers 1800MHz spectrum

23 Jun 2016

The Greek telecoms regulator, the Hellenic Telecommunications & Post Commission (EETT), has called for expressions of interest for the granting of rights to use frequencies in the 1800MHz band. The frequencies are currently held by two of the country’s three incumbent mobile operators, Vodafone and Wind Hellas, but their usage rights are due to expire in August. The watchdog is offering six packets of spectrum in total: three 2×5MHz tranches of paired frequencies at 1735MHz-1750MHz/1830MHz-1845MHz (currently used by Vodafone); and three 2×5MHz packets at 1710MHz-1725MHz/1805MHz-1820MHz (held by Wind Hellas). Applications for the spectrum are being accepted until 5 July.
