Slovenia opens consultation on broadband wireless spectrum

23 Nov 2016

Slovenia’s Agency for Communications Networks & Services (Agencija za komunikacijska omrezja in storitve, AKOS) has opened a consultation into the award of broadband wireless spectrum in the 3.5GHz, 10GHz and 12GHz bands. The regulator’s draft information memorandum is calling for comments on the tender procedure, which it expects to kick off early next year. AKOS will be offering two blocks of 20MHz and one block of 10MHz in the 3.5GHz band, plus two 75MHz blocks, two of 100MHz and two paired 75MHz packets in the 10GHz range, as well as four blocks of 200MHz at 12GHz. It is expected that the frequencies will be used to provide broadband fixed-wireless access (BFWA) services in rural areas.
