Five bids for 3400MHz-3800MHz licences; UPC not interested

7 Oct 2015

Orange Romania, Vodafone Romania, RCS&RDS (Digi), National Radiocommunications Company (SNR) and 2K Telecom submitted offers for 3400MHz-3800MHz wireless broadband licences by the deadline of 5 October, reports. The ten-year nationwide licences will be valid from 1 January 2016. Current licence holders in the band are Orange Romania, UPC Romania, Vodafone Romania, 2K Telecom and SNR, under concessions expiring at end-2015. UPC apparently decided not to renew its wireless broadband spectrum. If demand exceeds the available resources, an auction for the frequencies will start on 26 October.
