700 MHz auction is closed – auction proceeds were 2,8 billion SEK

12/11/2018

The PTS auction for licences in the 700 MHz band is finished after an auction in two stages. Two bidders won licences for SEK 2,8 billion.

The auction was concluded after 5 days of bidding and 46 bidding rounds, and one additional round which decided the placement in the frequency band. 

–   Swedish users of mobile services use more and more data every year. Access to the 700 MHz band gives good prerequisites for meeting this increasing demand, said Dan Sjöblom, director-general of PTS.
