Tenders for the sale of licenses should be available before the end of 2017.
The national Commission for regulation of communications and Informatization (NCCIR) has adopted in principle the draft amendments to government resolution that would allow the regulator to be put up for tender frequencies in the 2.6 GHz band under 4G. This writes ЛИГА.net with reference to the message controller.
Until December 30, the Commission will accept comments and suggestions to this project.
“4G – go! Adopted for public comment the price (for frequencies under 4G – ed.), compensation for existing users (radio – edition) and corresponding changes in the Plan of HRD. Only for 2600 MHz. I hope the “big three” savvy enough to offer solution at 1800 MHz”, – wrote the head of the NCSRCI Oleksandr Zhivotovsky on his page in Facebook.
As writes the edition, the project proposed that 1 MHz in the 2.6 GHz band for one region will cost a little more than 1 million hryvnia. The license will be issued for 15 years.
In total, under 4G reserved 80 MHz in four bands: 2510-2545 MHz ,2565-2570 MHz , 2630-2665 MHz 2685-2690 MHz.
Thus, by estimates of the edition, and one nationwide license in 25 regions (without Crimea and Sevastopol) for 20 MHz will cost the operator 500 million hryvnia. NCCIR must prepare to conduct 4G contests until the end of 2017.
We will remind that the starting price for a 3G licence at 30 MHz for the auction in 2015 was set at 2.7 billion.
As reported Корреспондент.netin July this year in Ukraine for the first time tested the technology 4G LTE TDD in the range of 2300 MHz.
Also the Deputy head of the presidential Administration Dmitry shymkiv said that Ukraine is 4G once can be run by the fifth generation of. In his opinion, there can be a situation that the 4G licensing will no longer have meaning.
