In March 2019, DAE held an auction for the 700 MHz, 900 MHz & 2.3 GHz spectrum. The auctions were won by three leading operators in Demark - TDC, Hi3G and TT-Network.

According to the 5G Action Plan of Denmark, DAE declared that the commercialization of 5G will start by auctioning the 3.5 GHz (n78) band and 26 GHz (n258) band by the end of 2020.

In the meantime, they have issued temporary licenses for the 3.5 GHz band to the mobile operators for conducting 5G trials until the next auction is completed. 

The authority feels that 700 MHz, 3.5 GHz (n78) & 26 GHz (n258) frequency bands are the main bands for the deployment of 5G. Public consultation for the 3.5 GHz band has already begun.

Telecom operators have also announced that they will be shutting down 3G networks. TT Network announced that they will shut down 3G networks from April 2021. Hi3G also revealed its plans of phasing out 3G in 2020 by allocating 10 MHz in 2100 MHz for 4G networks. This will help expedite the deployment for 5G Networks in Denmark.
