New deadline for Poland’s 5G sale

20 Nov 2020

The Polish government has set a new deadline for the completion of the delayed auction of 3.7GHz spectrum for 5G mobile services. Having missed its original target of 30 June 2020 due to a combination of factors including changes to legislation and the COVID-19 pandemic, the government now wants the auction to be completed by 27 August 2021. The country’s telecoms regulator, the Office of Electronic Communications (Urzad Komunikacji Elektronicznej, UKE), is hopeful that a sale will take place in the first half of next year.
