The Fijian government has announced plans to hold a 4G license auction as soon as the end of next month.
Fijian Attorney-General and Minister for Communications Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said that -- in some unspecified manner that the "strength of [the 4G] signal will play an important role in extending mobile coverage to 100% of Fiji, up from 95% now".
"The auction - for 4G LTE Spectrum - will promote competition, attract foreign investors, and eliminate the kind of corruption that is seen the world over when it comes to spectrum allocation," the Attorney General said in a statement.
Even at this fairly close date to the auction though, no details about the pricing or the license conditions have been released.
The ascending bid auction will take place from 24 June to 28 June at the office of the Department of Communications in Suva, Fiji.
