ANACOM concludes BWA auction. The Portuguese telecoms regulator and spectrum manager, ANACOM, has concluded an auction of regional spectrum licences in the 3.4-3.6 and 3.6-3.8GHz bands. The auction format was a two-stage, sealed bid combinatorial format developed by DotEcon. In the first stage, bidders could submit package bids for any number of licences of 2x28MHz across 9 regions. In the second stage, winning bidders could present top-up bids for specific frequencies. Bravesensor and Onitelecom both won lots across a number of regions including Lisbon. Existing BWA, GSM and UMTS mobile licensees were not allowed to bid in the auction.
