Because the total combined number of blocks requested by the bidders (13 blocks de 10 MHz) was greater than the number of available blocks (11 blocks de 10 MHz), the auction was not completed.

The bidding will resume tomorrow with round number 13, with the price set at 114 million euros per block of 10 MHz. The value of the increment between each round of bidding, for a block of 10 MHz, remains unchanged at 3 million euros.
