The 5G frequency auction in the Netherlands has been postponed again. The auction should have taken place last month. KPN, T-Mobile and Vodafone would like to use the 3.5 GHz frequency band for 5G, but this is not possible at the moment. The National Frequency Plan that allocates available bandwidth, does not work. At the moment, providers, satellite stations, local license holders and the networks of, for example, the port of Rotterdam and Schiphol, are in each other’s way on the 3.5 GHz frequency bands. The Ministry of Economic Affairs must now review the frequency plan and an independent advisory committee will have to enter into discussions with all stakeholders.
