The basic purpose of this auction procedure is to facilitate the development of Hungary’s digital economy through the sale of frequency assets which can be used to provide new generation, so called 5G services as well.

Additional goals of the Auction:

b) promoting the efficient use of the radio spectrum;

c) promoting innovation and business development, and

d) opening up the frequencies required for a significant increase in data transmission speeds, for low delays enabling real-time control and communication, for a drastic increase of networkable devices (sensors and other smart devices), and for a significant increase in the secure availability of services.

These goals are also required to meet the requirements of Article 54 of the European Electronic Communications Code  requiring EU Member States to take all necessary measures until 31 December 2020 to allow for the use of the frequency band 3400-3800 MHz facilitating the deployment of 5G.

Accordingly, this auction also serves the purpose of applying and implementing European Union rules for technological harmonization, and other legal acts of European Union coordinate timing of frequency assignments in Hungary in a timely manner.
