Slovakia’s Telecommunications Office (TU SR) yesterday opened a tender for 10GHz band wireless frequencies intended for the provision of regional local broadband access services via fixed wireless access (FWA) technology. Licences are up for grabs in eight localities: Komarno, Levice, Liptovsky Mikulss, Martin, Nitra, Nove Zamky, Povazska Bystrica and Turcianske Teplice. The only evaluation criterion is the amount offered in a one-off payment for the allocation of a spectrum block. The minimum price for a block is set at EUR665 (USD925). Candidates must submit their tender documents to the regulator by 22 November 2010.
