FIJI’S 4G SPECTRUM AUCTION BEGINS TOMORROW MONDAY

Fiji’s 4G service for smart phone users will be one step closer to reality when the first-ever auction of frequencies on the radio spectrum opens in Suva Monday.

“With the new 4G technology, Universal Service Access and Local Internet Exchange, mobile coverage will be expanded and the internet will become more accessible and affordable. The progress of the auction can be followed by interested members of the public from start to finish,” said the Attorney-General and Minister for Communications, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

After each round of the auction, details of the highest bids across all the lots of spectrum will be posted on a notice board in the Foyer, Level 1, Suvavou House.

The auction will run in four daily rounds – at 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm – until Friday July 26 — but may end after as soon as two rounds if there are no new bids for any of the 20 lots of spectrum by that point

Three registered parties – Telecom Fiji Limited, Vodafone Fiji Limited and Digicel Fiji Limited – will be bidding for the right to provide the most up to date technology, putting Fiji on par with other nations that offer the top level of mobile voice and online services.
