Orange paid PLN358.1 million (USD115 million) to renew the licence, though rival firms Polkomtel and Sferia had called for the fee to be raised to PLN516 million based on per-MHz prices paid for spectrum by another two cellcos, Aero2 and P4. Orange currently covers over 99.5% of the country with its combined 900/1800MHz 2.5G network, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, while it also provides 3G services utilizing 2100MHz spectrum.
