Hungary regulator confirms operators for 5G auction

Hungarian operator DIGI Hungary was confirmed to not be participating in the country’s upcoming spectrum auction, with its three main rivals Magyar Telekom, Telenor, and Vodafone Hungary registering.

In a statement, Hungary’s telecoms regulator Nemzeti Media- es Hirkozlesi Hatosag (NMHH) said it registered the three operators on December 17, after they submitted formal interest in November 10, with the bidding process expected to commence early next year.

The regulator pledged after the auction it will detail publicly what operators paid, and for which frequencies in the 900MHz and 1,800MHz bands

DIGI Hungary previously said preliminary conditions set by NMHH to qualify for the auction in the above band were “obstacles” that prevented it from participating. The operator launched a petition, collecting 80,000 signatures to allow it to take part.
