Bouygues Telecom challenges French 4G auction process

28 June 2011

"...the French mobile operator Bouygues Telecom has brought action against the French government to challenge the legality of the French 4G auction procedures. Bouygues Telecom's claims relate to the interference between the 4G spectrum in the lower 800 MHz bands and digital terrestrial television (DTT) channels."

According to the online wireless newsletter "Rethink Wireless," the French mobile operator Bouygues Telecom has brought action against the French government to challenge the legality of the French 4G auction procedures. Bouygues Telecom's claims relate to the interference between the 4G spectrum in the lower 800 MHz bands and digital terrestrial television (DTT) channels. Bouygues Telecom believes that the cost created by such interference could reach 1.7 billion euros, and that such costs should not be borne by the operator having won the spectrum award. The French Conseil d'Etat is expected to rule sometime in July.
