Greece invites 5G auction applications

25 Sep 2020

The Greek government has kicked off its 5G auction process, inviting applications for spectrum in the 700MHz, 2GHz, 3.4GHz-3.8GHz and 26GHz bands. Applications for the multi-round auction are open until 23 October. The National Telecommunications & Post Commission (Ethniki Epitropi Tilepikoinonion kai Tachydromeion, EETT) is ultimately looking to award 2×30MHz in the 700MHz band, 2×15MHz in the 2100MHz band (plus 2×45MHz in the same band which is already allocated but licences expire in 2021), 280MHz at 3.7GHz, and up to 2,500MHz in the 24GHz-28GHz range, depending on demand.
