The Norwegian Communications Authority this week announced the results of auction of the 700 MHz and 2.1 GHz bands. Telia Company secured frequencies in the 700 MHz band.

The 700 MHz band is part of the current digital terrestrial network for television in Norway. As early as 2015 the Norwegian Government decided that the band should be used for mobile broadband. The band which will be a key enabler for fast roll-out of 5G in Norway, will be available for commercial operators from November 1, 2019.

Telia Company has secured access to 2x10 MHz in the 700 MHz band. The price for the new frequencies is approximately NOK 218 million. The frequencies are connected to a roll-out commitment for certain railway sections.

The licenses granted are valid for 20 years for the 700 MHz band.
