Slovenia delays 5G spectrum sale

10 Dec 2019

The Agency for Communications Networks & Services (Agencija za komunikacijska omrezja in storitve, AKOS) in Slovenia has said it is being forced to postpone its planned 5G spectrum auction to the second half of 2020 due to a delay in adopting the updated Radio Spectrum Management Strategy. The regulator had hoped to sell frequencies in the 700MHz, 1400MHz, 2100MHz, 2300MHz, 3400MHz and 26GHz bands by 30 June 2020, but now says that auction terms and conditions will be published by that date, with the sale to take place by the end of the year.
