Nkom starts consultation on high-band spectrum auction

Norwegian regulator Nkom has confirmed plans to auction high-band spectrum this autumn. The sale will include frequencies in the 6 GHz, 8 GHz, low 10 GHz, high 10 GHz, 13 GHz, 18 GHz, 23 GHz, 28 GHz and 38 GHz band.

Nkom started a public consultation on the proposed rules for the auction, including reserve prices, auction format and spectrum divisions. This is open for comment until 05 April. On 14 March, the regulator will hold a webinar on the two options for the auction format - clock or combined multi-round. The detailed rules will be subject to an additional consultation this summer, before being finalised.
