Telenor Spectrum 850 MHz Band

The announcement of Telenor being awarded spectrum in 850 MHz band against the payment of 395 million dollars has been recently made by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA). In a recent Press meeting of PTA, it was announced that only Telenor applied for NGMS spectrum in 850 MHz band (UL: 824-834 MHz/DL: 869-879 MHz). Telenor shall be awarded the spectrum at the base price.

The base price has been set at $395 million which is in accordance with the schedule given at the Information Memorandum or IM. After Telenor has made the payment, the license shall be given to them in the next 30 days. For this auction, PTA hired a UK-based consultant, known as InterConnect Communications (ICC) for the assessment of the market.

Information Memorandum was already prepared and published on PTA website. This Memorandum had all the essential details of applications to the award of the license. Even before the auction, it was clearly mentioned that if there is going to be one single applicant for the spectrum, it shall be awarded at the base price. After this publication, there were many local and foreign print media advertisements.

Although the session was also attended by Mobilink, WorldCall, and Multinet, none of them except Telenor showed interest in the Spectrum. Telenor’s application was found complete with respect to all the terms and conditions. Hence, this auction sale purchase will help in the empowerment of telecommunications industry in Pakistan with the future market trends and technological advancements.
