In line with previously announced plans, Norway’s National Communications Authority (Nasjonal kommunikasjonsmyndighet, Nkom) has published the detailed auction rules for its upcoming sale of spectrum in the 700MHz and 2100MHz bands. Furthermore, the regulator has also confirmed that the sale process itself will get underway on 3 June, with the deadline for applications from those looking to take part has been set as 9 May, with test auctions to then be held ahead of the start of the real auction.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, the watchdog revealed in July 2018 that it intends to make available a total of 2×30MHz in the 700MHz band and 2×15MHz in the 2100MHz band.
