DEA to auction 450MHz spectrum in June 2020

22 May 2020

The Danish Energy Agency (DEA, or Energistyrelsen) is planning to hold an auction for spectrum in the 450MHz frequency band on 23 June 2020. The regulator is offering one licence up for sale, with specific terms and conditions aiming to ensure that the spectrum is used effectively throughout the country. The permit will come into force on 24 January 2022 and expire on 31 December 2037. The DEA said that the frequencies are suitable, among other things, for the provision of IoT services as well as M2M communication and wireless broadband, but with restricted capacity (speeds) due to the limited frequencies available. Interested parties are invited to register for the auction on 9 June 2020.
