Six in frame for Macedonia's fourth mobile licence

14 May 2007

According to the Macedonian Electronic Communications Agency, six firms have expressed an interest in bidding for the country’s fourth mobile licence. The companies to have submitted a letter of interest are believed to include two unnamed domestic concerns, and four international ones, drawn from India, Russia, Switzerland and Germany. The regulator published its intention to search for a fourth mobile operator on 3 April and set a deadline of 10 May for applications. It is looking to beef up competition in the mobile market which is dominated by T-Mobile Macedonia (formerly MobiMak) and Cosmofon. A third player, Austria’s Mobilkom, is due to enter the market in September.
