Czech telecoms regulator announces final conditions for mobile frequency tender.

By bne IntelliNews July 12, 2012
The Czech telecommunications regulator CTU has announced the final terms of the auction of mobile frequencies to be held later in the year, Hospodarske Noviny reported citing the regulator. Under the initial plans, CTU was to auction 800 MHz, 1,800 MHz and 2,600 MHz frequency bands but the regulator decided not to offer the spectrum of 800 MHz and put aside the 1,800 MHz band for a newcomer. It also plans to cut the price of the new frequencies in the 1,800 MHz band by 20% in a bid to attract new players. So far 29 companies said they are willing to bid in the tender. Besides the three mobile phone companies currently active on the Czech market - Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile CR and the local units of Spanish Telefonica and UK's Vodafone, other potential bidders include Czech investment and financial groups PPF, J&T and KKCG. The regulator will publish the tender documents on July 12.
