LTE/4G spectrum auction in 2011

MCMC is aiming to auction at least 3 spectrum blocks at 2.6Ghz for LTE next year.

Toh Swee Hoe, senior director research and planning at the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), told a media that it expects to sell two 70MHz blocks at 2.6GHz and one 50MHz block.

Also according to the news report, MCMC is conducting closed consultations with all four operators about refarming 2G spectrum at 850MHz, 900MHz and 1800MHz for 3G.

Did you know?Two mobile operators trialled the LTE on the 900Mhz spectrum in 2009.

P.s: Why the joker picture above? Because MCMC can pull back licenses anytime in this country. So giving out the license itself is a joke.
