Auction of FM frequencies begins

radio frequency

The auction of FM frequencies for commercial radio stations began July 4, 2023. Nine licenses, currently owned by 100% NL, BNR, Qmusic, Radio 10, Radio 538, Radio Veronica, Sky Radio, SLAM! and Sublime, may change hands. The auction will last for several days. The Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal ruled last year that the national FM frequencies should be redistributed. The government has limited the number of frequencies for commercial radio providers to a maximum of three. Redistribution of the licenses must be completed by next September 1 , and the auction covers a 12-year period.
