2. Assignment process for the 1800 MHz band

Pursuant to Article 31 of the Auction Regulation, and following the provision of the referenced deposit, the Management Board of ICP-ANACOM is called on to define the exact location of the spectrum to be assigned in the 1800 MHz band, as well as spectrum already assigned in this band in respect of rights of use of frequencies allocated to the date of entry into force of this Regulation, taking into account the principles set out in paragraph 2 of said article 31.

For this purpose, and under the terms of article 31 of paragraph 3 of the Auction Regulation, the undertakings which, upon conclusion of the auction, successfully obtained lots in the 1800 MHz band, were given a period of 30 days from the date of notification of the act alluded to in article 29, paragraph 2, of the Regulation, to make agreement among themselves as to the exact location of the spectrum in this frequency band.

The three operators (Optimus, TMN and Vodafone) reported the agreement to ICP-ANACOM, as reached at a meeting held on 9 January 2012 and concluded on 17 February 2012, in which the exact location of the spectrum in the 1800 MHz band was determined among themselves, which agreement is approved by ICP-ANACOM on the same date in a separate decision.
