PTS's policy is to use auctions for assignment of licences when there is competition for spectrum.

The purpose of auctions is an efficient licensing process where the user who values the spectrum highest wins.

Auctions have been used to assign block licences (licences for a certain spectrum block in a certain geographic area) where the licence-holders do their own network planning. 

PTS has used auctions for all major licensing processes since the Electronic Communications Act of 2003 made it legally possible.
