Four Operators or Three? The Czech Mobile Spectrum Auction Continues
This IDC insight reviews the progress of the auction of mobile frequencies in the Czech Republic. It discusses the conditions set for the auction, especially the regulator's insistence on bringing a fourth mobile infrastructure player to the market, and whether these will meet the intended goals. While it is understandable that the regulator aims to increase competition and improve mobile broadband coverage, IDC is convinced a broader strategy will be needed to achieve such goals.
