Danish Government gives away new CDMA licence for free
Denmark Created: 7 Oct 2005
There is a new sport in Danish government: attempting to minimize liability by giving away new telecom licences

The Danish government is apparently wising up to the fact that having sold telecom licenses for billions might cause the health problems surrounding mobile phones and masts to blow up in their faces - so now the government is practically giving away new licenses for free.

Nordisk Mobiltelefon, a newcomer telecom in Denmark, has just recieved a free license to deploy a CDMA-450 network.
CDMA-450 technology is similar to the W-CDMA technology behind 3G/UMTS and can offer similar services but it requires fewer basestations as it operates on a far lower radio frequency than 3G/UMTS. Slower radiowaves travel further and CDMA-450 operates on 450MHz, while 3G/UMTS operates around 2000MHz. This allows CDMA-450 basestations to cover larger areas.
CDMA-450 is deployed in USA, Brazil, China, South Korea and Japan.

3G operator "3" has expressed heavy frustration in the Danish press that the government is giving away licences to new competitors.
