Auksjon #3 (2 GHz)

Auksjon nummer 3 gjeld tildeling av to av frekvensløyva i 2 GHz-bandet som vart ledige etter at Tele2 leverte attende frekvensane og Broadband Mobile gjekk konkurs. Auksjonen resulterte i at eitt av løyva vart tildelt Hi3G Access Norway, mens det andre løyvet ikkje vart seld i auksjonen. Informasjon om auksjonen vart berre publisert på engelsk.

The "core" IMT2000 spectrum is divided into 4 licenses with a combination of FDD and TDD spectrum. Four licenses were initially assigned after a "beauty contest" in 2000. Lots number 2 and 4 were vacant due to the bankruptcy of Broadband Mobile (2001) and Tele2 handing back its license (2002). The licences cover terrestrial services on Norwegian territory with the exception of Svalbard, Jan Mayen Island and Norwegian dependencies.
