Croatia’s Regulatory Authority for Network Industries (HAKOM) has awarded spare 1800MHz wireless spectrum to mobile operators Tele2 and T-Hrvatski Telekom (T-HT). The two companies were the only firms to show interest in the frequencies, with the former requesting a 2×15MHz block and T-HT asking for 2×10MHz. The licences are technology neutral so could be used for 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, mobile market leader T-HT launched 1800MHz LTE services in 2012, while third-placed Tele2 has still to introduce its own 4G services. The second largest operator VIPnet did not submit an application for the spectrum when bids were invited last month.
