Spectrum fees dropping 20% in 2013

10 Dec 2012

The Croatian Postal and Electronic Communications Agency (HAKOM) has issued a decision to reduce annual fees for the use of mobile radio spectrum by 20% in 2013. The regulator states that during the past four years spectrum fees have decreased by over 40% while other regulatory fees have been reduced by 22%, despite HAKOM relying solely on fees from operators for funding as it is not a direct recipient of the state budget.
