Regulator issues formal decision to release 2600MHz spectrum for 4G auction

19 Oct 2017

Ukraine’s National Commission for State Regulation of Communications and Informatization (NCCIR) has finalised a decision to convert and release frequencies in the 2600MHz band previously owned by MMDS Ukraine for the upcoming auction of 4G LTE mobile licences expected by the end of this year. MMDS Ukraine (part of the SCM Group which owns Ukrtelecom) will return to the state 80MHz in the 2600MHz range nationwide and receive UAH570 million (USD21.4 million) compensation, whilst additional 2600MHz frequency blocks in Kiev, Kharkiv and Zaporozhye regions to be included in the auction are already owned by the state. A 4G tender in the 1800MHz range will follow the 2600MHz licence sale.
