Romania's telecoms regulator Ancom has opened a consultation on what to do with the left over spectrum that was left unsold during a previous sale in 2012.
The regulator said that it intends that the spectrum be allotted for the provision of mobile broadband services.
Following the auction organised by ANCOM in 2012, one 2 x 5 MHz block in the 800 MHz band, in the sub-band pairs 791-796 MHz/832-837 MHz, and 8 blocks of 2 x 5 MHz in the 2600 MHz FDD band, in the sub-band pairs 2530-2570 MHz/2650-2690 MHz, remained vacant.
"We will offer again, to the interested persons, the opportunity to win some valuable spectrum, which will enable them to offer the Romanian market increasingly demanded mobile communications services." stated the regulator's President, Cătălin Marinescu.
The consultation via the Ancom website will close on the 18th February.
