1 Oct 2012

Kosovo’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (ART) has issued state-backed telco Post and Telecommunications Kosovo (PTK) a EUR250,000 (USD321,360) fine for illegal use of the 900MHz band. According to local paper Kosova Press, PTK was fined EUR150,000 earlier this year for the same offence; using without authorisation the frequency bands 880.2MHz-889.8MHz and 925.2MHz-934.8MHz. ART board member Naser Shala was quoted as saying that the most recent fine was: ‘A result of [the] continuation of unauthorised use of frequency resources and non-observance on ART decision.’
