Polish national telecom regulator UKE has completed a reservation procedure for the 3,400-3,800 MHz band, reports Telko.in. The watchdog issued reservation decisions according to the results of the auction carried out on 18 October.

Blocks of 100 MHz-wide bands were allocated to Orange Poland (PLN 487 million), P4, trading under the Play brand (PLN 487 million), Polkomtel, trading under the Plus brand (PLN 450 million) and T-Mobile Poland (PLN 497 million). Some bands were cheaper because their use includes some local restrictions.

Polish operators will be able to deploy 5G networks on the stand-alone mode using the new bands. Plus was the only able to deploy stand-alone networks because its holds a 50 MHz-wide time division duplex (TDD) block in the 2,600 MHz band.
