Spectrum Auction Results

Okay. So the final picture of the spectrum auction is now clear. Position of the seventeen companies that ran for the various frequency spectrum blocks in the 14 Telecommunication Regions is as follows:

The good thing to note here is that we have at least five strong contenders for the liberated telecom market besides PTCL. Also, the popularity of the 3.5 GHz band indicates a bright future for Broadband Wireless Access in Pakistan.

Talking about spendings, following is the overall expense that each of the companies have made in terms of the spectrum they have obtained in the auction:

With all the cash in the world at their disposal, the spendings by PTCL seems trivial but for the rest of the three companies, the stakes are defintely high.

It would be exciting to see how these opportunities and challenges are handled by the new telecom operators in the coming days.
