3G auction postponed

23 May 2007

Turkey’s Ministry of Transport and Communications has announced that it has postponed the country’s 3G auction until 7 September, Reuters reports. The tender for four 3G concessions had been due to be held at the end of this week. Unofficial reports suggest that the reason behind the postponement is a change in the date of general elections, which have been brought forward from November to July amid a political crisis.
