The 5G technology auction in new wording should be opened by the

 

end of H1 2020. The information was provided by the Ministry of

 

Industry and Trade (MPO). Foreign operators' interest in the 5G

 

auction, which has been under preparation since mid-2019, was nil,

 

Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček (for ANO) said after

 

the government session on January 27, 2020; he added that under

 

the current conditions, only one smaller Czech bidder would

 

probably enter the auction. The government has also recommended

 

to the Czech Telecommunications Office (ČTÚ) a new assignment accentuating cheaper mobile data and setting of criteria leading effective, fast, accessible and secure development of 5G networks.

 

The government also dismissed ČTÚ chairman Jaromír Novák.

 

Regarding his successor, the government expressed support for

 

current ČTÚ board member Jana Továrková.
