23 Apr 2013

Moldovan industry watchdog ANRCETI has announced the results of a public consultation for the auction of 2500MHz-2520MHz/2620MHz-2640MHz mobile frequency licences. The draft document was made available for public discussion between 26 March 2013 and 8 April 2013, however, no comments or recommendations were reportedly received.

According to the draft document, the ANRCETI will auction parts of the 2500MHz-2690MHz frequency band via a ‘beauty contest’ process, giving the winners the rights to use the aforementioned bands for the deployment of networks using IMT-2000, UMTS (W-CDMA), LTE and IMT-Advanced technologies. Under the licence conditions, each winner will be required to provide the minimum set of 4G services (data transmission, including mobile internet access) in areas inhabited by at least 25% of the Moldovan population (excluding the territory of Transdniestria) by 31 December 2015.
