Telstra urges peak spectrum price

Govt urged not to lower price of unsold spectrum in second auction.

Telstra Corp Ltd is pressuring the federal government to avoid discounting the price it hopes to achieve in a second attempt to sell a block of wireless spectrum that went unsold in a previous auction, according to The Australian.

In the first auction in May, Telstra paid $1.3 billion for a block of spectrum, while Optus paid $649 million for a block of spectrum half the size of Telstra's purchase.
