BIPT consults on 1400MHz band auction

18 Aug 2017

The Belgian Institute for Post and Telecommunications (BIPT) has launched a consultation relating to spectrum in the 1400MHz band. An earlier consultation from May this year yielded little interest from operators for the 1400MHz band and as a result the BIPT is postponing the auction of this spectrum, which has been earmarked for mobile broadband services. In the future, the regulator is proposing to offer 18 lots of 5MHz spectrum under a 20-year licence period, with companies restricted to buying a maximum of 45MHz. The consultation is open for feedback and comments until 8 September this year.
