Moldovan regulator consults on proposed spectrum allocations

10 Aug 2015

Moldovan watchdog, the National Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Information Technology (ANRCETI), has opened a public consultation on two sets of draft resolutions for the allocation of frequencies in the 800MHz, 880MHz-890MHz and 925MHz-935MHz bands (collectively known as the ‘e900MHz’ band), 2100MHz, 2500MHz-2690MHz and 3400MHz-3800MHz frequency bands. The consultation will run until 25 August 2015. The regulator has listed the available spectrum authorisations in the aforementioned bands as follows:

• one licence in the 790MHz-862MHz band (Class A);

• two paired allocations in the e900MHz band (Class B: 880MHz-915MHz/925MHz-960MHz);

• two concessions in the 2100MHz band (Class C: 1920MHz-1980MHz/2110MHz-2170MHz and Class D: 2010MHz-2025MHz);

• three concessions in the 2500MHz-2690MHz band (Class E: 2500MHz-2520MHz/2620MHz-2640MHz; Class F: 2560MHz-2570MHz/2680MHz-2690MHz; and Class G: 2575MHz-2615MHz); and

• eight licences in the 3400MHz-3800MHz band (Class H).

ANRCETI will award the available spectrum in a ‘combinatory clock’ auction, which was deemed the most appropriate auction method for simultaneous multi-band licence allocations. The issued licences will be valid for 15 years and will give the winners the rights to use the spectrum for the deployment of networks using IMT-2000, UMTS (W-CDMA), Long Term Evolution (LTE), IMT-Advanced technologies, broadband wireless access (BWA) and fixed wireless access (FWA) services.
