The auction of 5G wireless spectrum has been delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020. EETT is considering awarding 2×30 MHz spectrum chunks in the 700 MHz band, 65 MHz in the 1500 MHz band, 2×15 MHz in the 2100 MHz band, 280 MHz in 3.6 GHz, and up to 2,500 MHz in the 28 GHz Band (n258).

The Government of Greece has already made an announcement on freeing the 700 MHz Band for 5G mobile service in 2019.
