Austria’s Regulatory Authority for Broadcasting & Telecoms (RTR) has extended the public consultation on the terms and conditions for its planned auction of nationwide frequency usage rights in the 26GHz band and regional usage rights in the previously unassigned 3410MHz-3470MHz range, which went unsold for seven regions in 2019. Interested parties were originally given until 8 August to submit comments on the auction procedure documents, ahead of their formal publication, but this has now been extended to 31 August. The RTR then expects to hold the auction for the 5G-suitable spectrum in December at the earliest.

Under the terms and conditions, the 26GHz spectrum will be divided up into five 1×200MHz blocks, ranging from 26.5GHz-27.5GHz, and one block of 1×400MHz (25.5GHz-25.9GHz), while the 3.6GHz spectrum is to be divided into seven regional blocks, including two of 1×10MHz, one of 1×40MHz and four of 1×60MHz.
