PTA reassigns 900MHz spectrum to Siminn, Vodafone

24 Jun 2016

Icelandic telecoms regulator the Post and Telecom Administration (Post-og Fjarskiptastofnun, PTA) has revealed that it will reallocate Siminn and Vodafone’s frequencies in the 900MHz band, under Decision No. 7/2016. Currently, the two operators could utilise their respective 2×5MHz blocks in the band until 13 February 2017, though the regulator has extended the validity of the concessions for an additional five years. Further, the spectrum will become technology-neutral on 14 February 2017. The proposal was subject to public consultation in March 2016.
