Estonia’s Consumer Protection and Technical Regulatory Authority (Tarbijakaitse ja Tehnilise Jarelevalve Amet, TTJA) has kicked off its latest 5G spectrum auction, offering six packets of frequencies in the 700MHz band (694MHz-790MHz). Each licence includes 2×5MHz of spectrum and carries a reserve price of EUR1 million (USD993,000). A maximum of two licences can be won per bidder. Applications for the auction are being accepted until 10 October, with the regulator expecting to begin the auction by mid-November and award licences by the end of the year. The recent sale of licences in the 3.5GHz band saw successful bids from Estonia’s three incumbent cellcos, Telia, Elisa and Tele2.
