Orioni auction of 5G spectrum

Recommended Posts


Summary: Orioni government launches auction for high-speed mobile communication.

In 2020 the Orinese government will auction 5G frequencies. This technology is necessary to support increasing mobile data use. Good, fast and secure internet is essential for the economy of and business in Orioni. The government wants to improve the technological state of the nation, specifically in connection with the rollout of 5G. Today, the Councillor for the Economy Mr Hiram Hiramson explained to the Sibiseba his recommended plan of action to build a secure and performant 5G network.

"Every day, Orinese consumers are using more and more mobile data," says Mr Hiramson. "Whether it's for digital payments, online videos, robots, or drones in the agricultural and healthcare sectors. They’re becoming a part of our daily lives. That’s why the government is taking steps to make sure society's significant needs for fast and reliable mobile communication are taken care of. We’re doing this through our proposal for the auction of the necessary frequency space."



  • International cooperation is essential for the construction and management of this 5G network. Therefore, the government supports a joint venture. This could include international legislation, coalition formation or the development of international norms and standards. A structural process will be set up in cooperation with the telecom providers, which will take into account the business economic aspects to the maximum extent possible, as long as this doesn't affect national security.


  • Telecom providers will be required to take additional security measures to increase resilience to the threat from other countries. One of these measures is to impose strict requirements on suppliers of services and products in the critical parts of the telecom network. This will help further diminish the vulnerability to hacking and abuse. Untrustworthy suppliers can be excluded if they have close ties to unfriendly foreign authorities or suspected involvement in espionage.


  • The Council will auction the 700MHz, 1400MHZ and 2100MHz frequencies in the first quarter of 2020 (January-March). Frequencies in the 3.5GHz and 26GHz bands will be allocated in the second quarter of 2020 (April-June).


  • This auction will remain open for 2 months after this publication. The highest bidders are allowed to use the frequencies in question, for example, to provide mobile internet. In 2018 there were an estimated 69,8 million internet users (48,35%) in Orioni.


  • Interested eligible bidders who wish to be included in the auction should contact the address below.

(OOC: This first round will end on March 17th. If you want to join the bid, now would be a good time. If you're holding out for the second round, that's understandable as well.)
