Putin’s order was published and came in force on Monday. The president put an end to a dispute over frequencies that were freed while television broadcasting is being switched into a digital format, that will end in 2019.
The State Radio Frequency Commission decided in 2011 to allocate a 694-790 megahertz (MHz) band for the development of the LTE network. MTS, MegaFon, VimpelCom and Rostelecom won an auction for the band in 2012. The communications ministry has suggested distributing 720-750 MHz and 761-791 MHz frequencies among the operators as soon as the frequencies were freed.
“If the frequencies were handed over to the cellular companies, we could have forgotten of the high definition television and the expansion of regional channels,” the association’s President Vladimir Livshits told the daily.
