Tanzania: Auction software services and execution of a spectrum auction in 700MHz band (2018)

Our software and the team expertise helped to deliver one of the few successful frequency auctions in Africa. The auction finished with all four blocks sold. Another positive aspect of the auction was that a new entrant appeared, a local Tanzanian company, who got frequencies for building a new 4G network.

As a subcontractor to the main contractor Coleago, we delivered the following services:

  • Software customisations
  • Software testing
  • On-site workshops
  • Training for TCRA and the two participating bidders
  • conducting the mock and the live auction
  • Auction results report

The auction consisted of four blocks 2x5MHz in the 700MHz band and was divided into several phases: primary bid rounds, unsold lot round, assignment bid round and the assignment round.
