TKK delays spectrum allocation due to Orange takeover

24 Apr 2012

Austria’s Telekom Control Commission (TKK) announced yesterday that it is to postpone the publishing of a tender document for the joint allocation of frequencies in the 800MHz, 900MHz and 1800MHz frequency bands. The decision comes in the wake of the proposed takeover of Orange Austria by H3G Austria, with the TKK saying it is unwilling to launch a tender for the spectrum while the acquisition is yet to be finalised.
