21 Aug 2017

Poland’s second largest mobile operator by subscribers, P4, which trades under the name Play, has agreed to acquire wireless spectrum in the 3.7GHz band, which it says it will utilise to increase the capacity of its 4G LTE systems. The frequencies, which will be transferred on 1 October, could also be suitable for future 5G services. A report from Telko.in says that P4 is buying two 14MHz blocks in the 3.7GHz band from Softnet Group, giving it spectrum between 3701MHz and 3729MHz, with the licences valid until December 2019. The financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed. P4’s Play service had 14.3 million subscribers at the end of March 2017.
