Slovenia’s regulator has confirmed that it will open a consultation on the country’s delayed auction of new spectrum frequencies.
The Agency for Communications Networks & Services originally planned to hold bidding for frequencies in the 700MHz, 1400/1500MHz, 2100MHz, 2300MHz, 3600MHz and 26GHz bands before the end of June this year.
However, issues with implementing an updated Radio Frequency Spectrum Management Strategy forced the regulator to revise this plan, and it is now targeting an auction before the end of the year.
The consultation meanwhile will open by July or August, with the regulator also set to publish documents covering the use and sale of 700MHz spectrum for M2M services. A separate consultation covering Slovenia’s spectrum management strategy for 2021-2023 is also planned.
