EETT’s Plenary approved today the publication of the tender document, whereby the tender process for granting rights of use of radiofrequencies in the bands 800 and 2600 MHz aiming at the further development of innovative services (4G/LTE) in mobile broadband, will be conducted.

The procedure was finalized after the completion of the public consultation and a consequent decision by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks, and is fully compliant with the current European regulatory framework. The followed procedure ensures competition in the Greek market and access of providers in the radio spectrum they require to invest in networks and mobile services.

According to the tender document, the procedure concerns the allocation of a total of 24 spectrum segments at the following reserve prices:

Frequency Band 800 MHz

Right of Use for Radio Frequencies

Reserve Price

Six (6) 2x5 MHz Spectrum Segments in the band 791 – 821 ΜΗz and 832- 862 ΜΗz

€ 51,5 million (per segment)

Frequency Band 2600 MHz

Fourteen (14) 2x5 MHz spectrum segments in the band 2500 – 2570 ΜHz and 2620 – 2690 MHz

€ 4,7 million (per segment)

Four (4) unpaired 10 MHz spectrum segments in the band  2575 – 2615 MHz

€ 1,3 million (per segment)

 

The tender process for all frequency segments will be conducted through auction of multiple rounds of increasing price.

It should be noted that the granting of rights in the 800 MHz band, resulting from the release of spectrum after the outset of terrestrial digital broadcasting, is the so-called digital dividend.

The next step in the process is the submission of participation applications, which is set for Monday, September 15, 2014 at 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. The tender documents, detailing the rules of conduct and the steps of the procedure is available on EETT website (http://www.eett.gr).
