Regulator mulls fourth mobile operator

21 Jan 2008

The Bulgarian communications regulator is reportedly considering whether to sanction the launch of a fourth mobile network operator. The Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) is expected to invite opinions from interested parties and the public in February and will subsequently prepare a report on whether there is a case for a new operator.

In late November last year, Bulgarian telecoms company Max Telecom applied for a mobile licence; two of the three current GSM operators – Telekom Austria’s MobilTel and Cosmote’s Globul – also filed applications to use the same frequency to expand their operations.
