The Federal network Agency had tightened after a first draft of the procurement conditions for the 5G frequencies. Particularly controversial is the conditions under which the operators of the radio networks autonomously develop, to ensure a gap-free network coverage.

The stricter requirements went “significantly beyond what has been described, the Federal network Agency before itself as reasonable and proportionate,” said Telecom spokesman for the “world”. The implementation of the requirements is unrealistic.

The Federal network Agency regulates the competition in the so-called “network markets”, such as a mobile radio, power supply or postal delivery. It is under the Ministry of economy. Deutsche Telekom itself belongs to about a third of the German state.
