TPG could potentially pick up a significant chunk of spectrum in the 700MHz band, boosting its ability to roll out a 4G mobile network, under rules set by the government for an upcoming auction.
TPG says it welcomes a decision by the government to ditch previously mooted plans to sell spectrum in the 700MHz band to Vodafone Hutchison Australia.
The government will hold a new auction for 2x15MHz of spectrum in the 700MHz band that remained unsold after the 2013 Digital Dividend auction.
Vodafone will switch off its 2G GSM network on 30 September 2017, the telco announced this morning.
