NMHH has begun preparations for the 5G spectrum sales

Budapest, 25 September 2018 - According to a statement made by Monika Karas, President of the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) on Tuesday at the annual Internet Hungary conference in Siófok, the Authority plans to sell the frequencies required for Hungarian 5G services during the third quarter of next year. The President of the Authority also noted that the NMHH will do everything in its power to ensure that the necessary legislation is drafted by the end of this year.

In her keynote speech, Monika Karas emphasized that establishing the necessary conditions for fifth-generation Internet services in accordance with international consensus is vital to the strategy of the National Media and Infocommunications Authority. Accordingly, at the Internet Hungary conference on Tuesday, the President of the NMHH announced that the Authority had begun preparing the new spectrum sales planned for the third quarter of 2019. Service providers will be offered the 700 MHz and 3400-3800 MHz frequency bands, possibly along with some other currently available bands, given sufficient demand. However, the new 5G spectrum sales will also pose new regulatory challenges. The NMHH will draft the necessary legal requirements by the end of this year, allowing for debate and consultation regarding the market and social ramifications and details of the documents to begin in March, with the sales process itself commencing in early summer.
