The NMHH intends to sell the frequency use rights that may be available in the 900 MHz frequency band in connection with GSM, UMTS, LTE and WiMAX system based radio and telecommunication services at an international auction with two rounds. Should a new market participant obtain a right within the 900 MHz frequency band, such will also acquire an option right to purchase further frequency blocks in the 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz frequency bands. By selling the 900 MHz frequency block, the NMHH allows the winning service providers of the auction to offer the most state-of-art mobile services in areas where the broadband coverage was not adequate until now. The aim of the NMHH is to utilise the frequency capacity efficiently, to encourage service providers to implement network developments, and to enhance service level through making competition in the mobile market more intense, and to protect the interests of subscribers.
