5G spectrum auction has ended

The 26 GHz spectrum auction organised by the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom ended on 8 June 2020 at 11.40 am. Three frequency bands of 800 megahertz were auctioned.

The auction results are:

25,1 - 25,9 GHz (A)Elisa Oyj7 000 000 €
25,9 - 26,7 GHz (B)Telia Finland Oyj7 000 000 €
26,7 - 27,5 GHz (C)DNA Oyj7 000 000 €

The government grants licences on the basis of the outcome of the auction. The frequency range can be used for the construction of 5G networks from 1 July 2020. The licences are valid until 31 December 2033.

Finland's position as a top 5G country will be further strengthened by allocating more frequencies for 5G use. Additional frequencies for new technology communications networks provide more capacity and very high speeds for communication links.

The auction regulation can be found on the Finlex website (External link). (in Finnish and Swedish)
