TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates
Cologne (dpa) - The frequency auction for the fast mobile communication standard 5G can take place as planned. The Cologne administrative court rejected urgent applications of the previous mobile network operators against the general conditions of the auction. Telefónica, Vodafone and Deutsche Telekom filed lawsuits against state procurement rules. Due to the urgent applications, the complaints should have a suspensive effect. By rejecting the applications, auctioning of the frequency blocks can now start as planned next Tuesday.
