Regulator announces six tenders for frequency allocation

The Slovak Telecommunications Office, the country’s telecom market regulator, published on Monday six tender invitations for telecommunications service frequencies.

The regulator’s spokesperson, Roman Vavro, said that selected frequencies will ease the construction of networks and lead to higher competition in providing digital TV, the internet, voice services and the so-called “last mile” for alternative operators.

The Telecommunications Office said the price bids will be the sole criterion for allocating the frequencies. The winners will receive a permit to operate on the allocated frequencies for 10 years.

The tenders cover the frequency allocation in a band from 41.5 to 43.5 GHz for providing multimedia services in Bratislava, Trenčín and Trnava.
