Swedish regulator opens spectrum applications for local 5G licences


PTS, the Swedish regulator, expects applications from manufacturing, mines, warehouses and hospitals.

PTS is inviting applications for local spectrum licences in the 3.7 GHz and 26 GHz bands. The permits allow companies across a range of sectors to run their own 5G infrastructure.

The regulator says, "The conditions aim to enable local applications in an appropriate and robust manner and thereby provide space for innovation and development, as well as contribute to the further roll-out of 5G uses in Sweden.

"The terms are designed to enable spectrum-efficient use in accordance with PTS's spectrum strategy. The PTS website now contains application documents, instructions and conditions for the application."

In June, the German regulator said it had issued 123 private 4G and 5G spectrum licences.
