Applications open for additional spectrum in Timor-Leste

Applications open for additional spectrum in Timor-Leste

The regulator of Timor-Leste has released additional spectrum in the 1800MHz, 2300MHz and 2600MHz bands, with operators now able to apply for allocations.

As reported by CommsUpdate, in September this year Timor-Leste’s Ministry of Transport and Communications released new policy recommendations aimed at maximising spectrum efficiency in the market.

This prompted the ANC (Autoridade Nacional de Comunicacoes) to seek feedback from the country’s operators, including Timor Telecom, Telin Timor-Leste, and Viettel Timor Leste, through a consultation.

The release of the extra spectrum is intended to align with the government’s policy guidelines by allowing operators access to additional spectrum to improve data services, particularly in densely populated areas. The ANC hopes that the improved spectral efficiency will foster greater competition in the market.
