Croatia’s 5G sale pushed back to next year

26 Jun 2020

The Croatian Postal & Electronic Communications Agency (HAKOM) has postponed its planned auction of 5G-capable frequencies until the first half of 2021. The authority was looking to allocate spectrum in the 700MHz, 3.6GHz and 26GHz bands by the end of this year but says the COVID-19 outbreak caused a delay to the migration of TV broadcasts from the 700MHz range and has also impacted operators’ finances. The regulator has opened a new consultation into the allocation of the above spectrum alongside 800MHz and 900MHz frequencies.
