5G Auction Ends After 27 Days of Bidding|5G總得標1380億 中華電信456.75億買90MHz

Following 27 days of intense bidding, Taiwan's auction of 5G mobile airwaves concluded on Jan. 16. The total bid amount was NT$138 billion. The competition for the right to use the 3.5GHz band was especially fierce, and Chunghwa Telecom secured the right to the 90MHz spectrum for NT$45.675 billion to become the biggest winner. It was followed by Far EasTone Telecommunications, Taiwan Mobile, and Taiwan Star Telecom. Asia Pacific Telecom ended up withdrawing from the bidding for the 3.5GHz band.

The National Communications Commission kicked off its 5G mobile airwaves auction on Dec. 10, conducting 10 rounds every day. On Jan. 16, the 261st round was held, and the NCC predicted bids could reach NT$44 billion. This time, only a total of 270MHz was made available from the sought-after 3.5GHz band, and the bidding amongst five telecoms was fierce, causing the price to continuously rise. The NCC, worried that future data costs would increase, urged the companies to be rational and calm. The companies took a step back, allowing the bidding to finally conclude. 5G is expected to be available by mid-year.

5G競價作業從去年12月10日開始,每天進行10回合,今天來到第261回合,NCC預計標金440億元;但最黃金頻段3.5GHz、這次只釋出270MHz,因此造成五家電信業者互不相讓,價格不斷攀高。NCC擔心未來電信資費攀升,不斷公開呼籲業者要「理性、冷靜」,今天各家業者各退一步,終於結標。5G結標後,預計於今年年中開台。
