Auction for LTE and WiMAX spectrum of 205MHz

Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation in Denmark announces the auction of 2.5GHz
 
The Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation (National IT and Telecom Agency) today announced the public consultation on the auction of 2.5GHz spectrum in Denmark.

The licences granted to the winning bidders will allow them to deploy their own choice of technology (provided it does not cause interference to other spectrum users) and offer any type of service.

205MHz of spectrum will be auctioned in total: 190MHz in the 2.5GHz band (2500–2690MHz) and 15MHz in the 2010MHz band (2010–2025MHz).

The spectrum, which will be auctioned on a national basis, is suitable for providing 4G wireless broadband services based on standards such as LTE (Long Term Evolution) and WiMAX.

However, it may also be attractive for other uses such as mobile TV or wireless cameras. It is hoped that this technology- and service-neutral approach will stimulate competition and enable the winning bidders to offer advanced and innovative services to as many people as possible throughout Denmark.

The auction is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2010 and will be conducted electronically, with participants submitting their bids via a secure Internet connection.
 
Further information about the auction may be found in draft versions of the Information Memorandum and the Executive Order , which are published today alongside a Consultation Document by the National IT and Telecom Agency (NITA). Copies of these documents (in Danish and English) may be downloaded from the NITA’s website (www.itst.dk).

Stakeholders are invited to comment on the proposals by responding to the consultation before 15 September 2009.
