Hungary offers fourth mobile license this year.

By bne IntelliNews September 8, 2010
The National Communications Authority (NMHH) will renew efforts to sell 450MHz mobile frequency range by end-2010, deputy head of the institution Gabor Matrai announced. The telecom regulator scrapped the first tender last year due to substantial worsening of the market conditions, as well as concerns about the non-transparent ownership structure of some of the bidders. According to Matrai, the investors have already expressed interest in the purchase, while the licence could be granted to a new operator. NMHH will also offer 900MHz broadband internet frequency on sale. Matrai suggested that this frequency could be offered only to the operators on the local market, such as T-Mobile, Pannon GSM and Vodafone. The 2010 budget was prepared including expected revenues at HUF 20bn from the sale of the frequencies.
