Moldova’s National Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications & IT (Agentia Nationala pentru Reglementare in Comunicatii Electronice si Tehnologia Informatiei, ANRCETI) has invited expressions of interest in the potential allocation of wireless frequency blocks across several TDD and FDD spectrum bands. To complete the country’s Radio Spectrum Management Programme (2013-2020), the regulator is aiming to auction spectrum in the near-term – dependent on demand – under licences which will be valid until November 2029. Respondents must submit expressions of interest and comments for each proposed frequency band allocation by 10 September 2018. ANRCETI will then decide on the timing, terms and format of the auction(s).
The list of potential spectrum blocks up for grabs includes:
2×5MHz in the 900MHz band;
2×14.8MHz plus 1×5MHz in the 2100MHz band;
1×15MHz in the 2GHz range;
2×30MHz plus 1×40MHz in the 2600MHz range;
1×200MHz in the 3.4GHz-3.6GHz range; and
1×200MHz in the 3.6GHz-3.8GHz range.
