PTS cancels the planned auction in the 700 MHz band

A decision by the government today states that the frequencies 694-790 MHz will be available for broadcasting of terrestrial television until May 31 2018. This overturns the previous decision in 2014, stating that the frequencies should be available for other use than terrestrial television from April 1 2017. As the planned auction in the 700 MHz band comprises parts of this frequency range the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) today has decided to cancel the auction, that was due to start on December 1 2016.

PTS will resume working with how to assign the 700 MHz band when the conditions are cleared.
