Vietnam’s Authority of Radio Frequency Management (RFD) is completing preparations for an auction of mobile spectrum in the 700MHz band, VietNamNet reports. The frequencies, which were freed up through the switchover from analogue to digital TV, will be used by mobile operators for the provision of 4G and 5G services. In preparation for this, in December 2019 the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) published Circular No. 19/2019/TT BTTTT on plans for the use of the 694MHz-806MHz frequency band for mobile services; it came into effect on 16 February 2020. The development follows an unsuccessful auction of 2300MHz spectrum licences earlier this year which failed to attract any bidders.
