Plus renews 420MHz licence

17 Nov 2020

Polish cellco Plus (registered as Polkomtel) is to pay PLN21.6 million (USD5.7 million) to renew its licence in the 420MHz band for a further 15 years. The concession, which includes 2×2.5MHz of frequencies (412.5MHz-415.0MHz paired with 422.5MHz-425.0MHz), was previously held by Plus subsidiary Nordisk Polska, which paid PLN16.1 million for a 14-year licence in 2006. Nordisk was acquired by Plus in 2009 and was merged into its parent last year. The spectrum is used for CDMA-based mobile dispatch and telemetry services, plus wireless internet access in rural areas with poor cellular coverage.
