Belgium opens 3.5GHz sale

11 Mar 2015

Belgium’s telecoms regulator, the Institut Belge des services Postaux et des Telecommunications (BIPT), has opened a tender for wireless broadband spectrum in the 3.5GHz band (3410MHz-3500MHz and 3510MHz-3600MHz). A total of four packets of frequencies are for sale, comprising two lots of 2×20MHz, plus two lots of 2×25MHz. Each bidder can acquire up to two lots. 3.5GHz spectrum has already been allocated on a regional basis in Belgium to three firms – Gigaweb, Mac Telecom and b.lite – with the existing licensees eligible to bid for spectrum in areas where they do not already hold concessions.
