Poland hopes to award 5G spectrum by mid-2020

2 Apr 2019

Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (Urzad Komunikacji Elektronicznej, UKE) says it hopes to be in a position to auction 3.6GHz-3.8GHz spectrum for future 5G services by the first half of next year. The regulator is hopeful that spectrum could be awarded by June or July 2020, though its previous spectrum auctions have not always gone to plan, with the sale of 800MHz and 2600MHz frequencies in 2014/15 having been hit with a number of delays.
