The purpose of this document is to inform the public of the assignment process that will be adopted in respect of the 900 MHz and the 1800 MHz bands.

This document also provides information as to the steps that will be taken by the Malta Communications Authority (MCA) in respect of the assignment of these frequencies and sets out a clear course for the selection of prospective rights of use holders.
