Good news for anyone taking a look at the upcoming 5G technology. Now that the Federal Network Agency has spoken again, the auctioned 5G frequencies are being allocated to network operators. To be more precise, the whole procedure begins with Telekom, which receives the 3.6 GHz frequencies that have been auctioned on request. Vodafone and Drillisch (1 & 1) have also submitted the corresponding applications, as reported by the Federal Network Agency.

Press release from the Federal Network Agency

At the request of Telekom Deutschland GmbH, the Federal Network Agency today allocated the frequencies in the 3.6 GHz range. The frequencies of the other selected bidders can also be allocated on request. Assignment applications have been submitted from Drillisch Netz AG and Vodafone GmbH and a decision is due shortly.

“Once they have been allocated, the acquired frequencies can be used nationally for 5G. Therefore, the rapid provision of broadband is in the hands of the company. Network operators can specify their network planning and expand their networks quickly, ”explains Jochen Homann, President of the Federal Network Agency.

Abstract spectrum auction

The subject of the frequency auction in Mainz was 41 frequency blocks of the 2 GHz and 3.6 GHz frequency ranges. For the most part, the blocks were auctioned abstractly in terms of their location on the spectrum. Only in the 3.6 GHz range were the upper and lower blocks at a specific band position auctioned.

Once the auction was completed, the allocation procedure was used to allocate the auctioned blocks in an abstract way according to the procedure provided in the auction rules.

Assignment and allocation

After the auction, the four bidders initially had the opportunity to agree on the location of the auctioned frequency blocks abstractly in the frequency ranges. Because a full agreement was not reached, the Federal Network Agency decided on the assignment on August 2, 2019.

Frequencies can now be assigned at the request of companies. The Federal Network Agency can assign frequencies quickly. This means that the frequencies can be used for the respective business models.

Supply conditions

Part of the allowance is also the obligation of the company to implement the pension obligations. Consequently, by the end of 2022, grantees must supply 98 percent of homes in every federal state and all major federal highways, highways, and railroads with at least 100 Mbit / s. By the end of 2024, all other federal highways must receive at least 100 Mbit / s, all major state and state highways, seaports and waterways, and all other railroads with at least 50 Mbit / s.
