Poland waives spectrum fees for new mobile development

20 Nov 2017

The Polish Senate has passed a law allowing the country’s cellcos to test new wireless technologies without incurring frequency utilisation fees. Telecoms watchdog the Office of Electronic Communications (Urzad Komunikacji Elektronicznej, UKE) says the move is designed to provide incentives to promote development in sectors such as future 5G mobile services. The Act also provides for the possibility of obtaining permission to use radio equipment for research, testing and experimentation, as well as non-technological purposes such as refarming.
