Estonia’s Consumer Protection and Technical Regulatory Authority (Tarbijakaitse ja Tehnilise Jarelevalve Amet, TTJA) has announced that the three incumbent cellcos have won 5G licences in the 26GHz (24.7GHz-27.1GHz) band. Each 400MHz licence had a starting price of EUR800,000 (USD878,000). After a single round of bidding Elisa agreed to pay EUR1.626 million for two licences while Telia bid EUR1.602 million and Tele2 offered EUR1.600 million.
The three operators already have live 5G networks. 3.5GHz concessions were auctioned in a three-stage process in mid-2022, while the incumbents all won 700MHz licences in November.
