PTA revokes Yellow Mobile’s 2600MHz licence

27 Aug 2019

Iceland’s Post and Telecom Administration (PTA, or Post-og Fjarskiptastofnun [PFS]) has announced the cancellation of Yellow Mobile’s 2600MHz concession. In a press release the regulator noted that, with the licence having been issued to the cellco in July 2017, it was required to have started using the spectrum within twelve months but failed to do so. According to the PTA, it had subsequently granted Yellow Mobile several deadline extensions to allow it to fulfil its obligations, despite which the cellco has still yet to offer connectivity via its 2×10MHz block of 2600MHz spectrum. As a result of the continued failure to fulfil the terms of its licence, the PTA has now confirmed the concession has now been revoked by Decision No.18/2019.
