Sweden consults on 2.6GHz licence extension

27 Apr 2022

The Swedish Post and Telecom Agency (Post & Telestyrelsen, PTS) has opened another consultation into the proposed extension of licences in the 2.6GHz band, enabling them to run for an additional two years until end-2025. This would allow the regulator to auction 2.6GHz licences along with those for the 2100MHz and 900MHz bands. Under PTS proposals, the auction process for all three bands is due to get underway in September 2023, with permits valid from the start of 2026.
