MNP bidding restarted in Ukraine; Mar-16 launch unlikely

10 Nov 2015

The Ukrainian State Centre of Radio Frequencies (UCRF) has announced that it will repeat the bidding for the selection of equipment and software suppliers for the launch of mobile number portability (MNP) having declared the process invalid, BizLiga reports. TeleGeography notes that the head of the UCRF had previously targeted March 2016 as the launch date for MNP, but this now looks likely to be pushed backwards. According to UCRF Director of Administration Vadim Gulko, none of the four bidders provided the requisite complete set of documents in their initial applications last month. The four bidders were named as Dialink, T4B, SI Center and Internet Technology Centre.
