Spain to Raise $2.7 Billion from Radio Spectrum Auction
|16 февраля 2011|
Spain's Tourism and Commerce Ministry has announced plans to raise between EUR1.5-2 billion (US$2-2.7 billion) from the sale of radio spectrum released from the "digital dividend".
In a statement, the Minister of Industry, Tourism and Trade Miguel Sebastian said that mixed competition/auction would be used in the process, which aims to release 310Mhz of spectrum.
The Ministry estimates that the sale will also boost the economy by EUR1.2 billion and created 40,000 additional jobs.
The Ministry is also planning to establish a legal framework for radio spectrum refarming by the mobile operators and reuse of GSM spectrum for 3G services. The legal framework is expected to last until 2030 pending a further review then to take into account technology changes.
The spectrum being released in the forthcoming auction will be in the 800Mhz, 900Mhz, 1800Mhz and 2.6Ghz bands. It is expected that the current radio spectrum dedicated to mobile communications services will increase by 70%.
The date for the auction has not been set yet
