German Conservatives Call for Postponement of UMTS Auctions
Posted: 26-Apr-2000 [Source:]

[High priced spectrum auctions such as in the UK could double prices to consumers warns CDU/CSU representative in the German parliament.]

Berlin -- "The Christian Democrat (CDU/CSU) faction in the German parliament has warned German Finance Minister Eichel against using the auction of frequencies for the next generation of mobile phones for the "renewal of the federal budget".

"Elmar Mueller, the parliamentary representative responsible for questions concerning telecommunications in the CDU/CSU faction, said in Berlin, that the prices for the new broadband UMTS frequencies should on no account reach the levels of those in the UK.

"If a license were to cost up to 10 million Marks (4.76 million USD) or more, then prices for mobile data services would "approximately double" as a consequence. "Consumers would be the losers", commented Mueller. Deutsche Telekom has already warned of competition distortions in the mobile telecommunications sector within the EU.
