PTS outlines 'orientation plan' for 450MHz, 1500MHz, 2300MHz spectrum allocation

20 Feb 2017

The Swedish Post and Telecom Agency (Post & Telestyrelsen, PTS) has presented an updated ‘orientation plan’ for its future radio spectrum assignments. The watchdog will seek to auction the 450MHz band in spring 2018; the 700MHz band (no timeframe defined – pending ‘essential conditions’ to be clarified); the 1500MHz band (2018 or later); and the 2300MHz frequency band (2018 at earliest). Going forward, the PTS seeks to ‘maintain high transparency’ by updating the orientation plan on a regular basis.
