Two announce interest in second wireless licence

7 Dec 2006

Telekom Austria’s Mobilkom and Telekom Srbija have purchased tender documents for the forthcoming auction of both a 2G and a 3G licence in Montenegro. Interested parties have until 15 January 2007 to submit offers with the winners expected to be announced on 1 February. The 3G licence carries a pricetag of EUR2 million, while the 2G concession will cost EUR4 million, significantly less than the EUR320 million that Mobilkom paid for the third Serbian licence last month. Both Mobilkom and Telekom Srbija made bids for Telekom Srpska earlier this week, with Telekom emerging victorious with a bid of EUR646 million.
