ARKEP invites applications for 2100MHz spectrum

3 Nov 2015

Kosovo’s Regulatory Authority for Post and Electronic Communications (Autoriteti Rregullator i Komunikimeve Elektronike dhe Postare, ARKEP) has announced plans to award spectrum in the 2100MHz band for GSM/UMTS/LTE/WiMAX services. The watchdog notes that on 23 October it received an application from incumbent Post and Telecommunication Kosovo (PTK) – which offers wireless services under the Vala brand – requesting the use of 2×10MHz in the 2100MHz band for 3G and 4G services. As such, ARKEP has given other interested parties 42 days from that date to submit their own applications, following which it will review all requests and determine the conditions and procedure for the allocation of 2100MHz frequencies.
