The 2 GHz auction has ended

The 2 GHz auction has ended after one auction round and all nine blocks were sold at the reserve price of 5 million Norwegian kroner per block. TeliaSonera and Telenor each won four blocks and Mobile Norway won one block of spectrum. This result means that these three companies each have the same amount of spectrum in the 2 GHz band (approximately 2 x 20 MHz).

There were five registered bidders in the auction. Two of the bidders withdrew from the auction, and one of them did so only 24 minutes before the first auction round was about to start and after the auction process had started. No company could possess more than four blocks in the 2 GHz band (spectrum cap) and therefore the auction ended after one round.
