CORPORATE BRIEFS

No winner in new GSM tender

Based on the conclusions of the tender commission and the Ministry of Telecommunications, Postal Services and Transportation, neither of the submitted bids met the basic criteria of the 1800 MHz GSM license tender. Neither of them, therefore, could have been advanced for further evaluation, reads the statement of Transportation Minister Ján Jasovský, made public by the Ministry's Media Policy Department.

"Regarding the fact that it was impossible to announce a winner of the tender and grant the respective license, I decided on its conclusion and preparation of new international tender," stated Jasovsky.

The Ministry announced the international tender for a GSM 1800 MHz mobile phone network license on August 11. Two formal bids were submitted before the official deadline (September 11). The companies that applied for the license were TatryTel, a.s. and Telenor GSM, a.s. The domestic entity standing behind Telenor GSM was Všeobecná Úverovaábanka, a.s. (VÚB) and its foreign partner was the Norwegian company Telenor. TatryTel was established by Všeobecná Socialná Poisťovňa Tatry and the firm Corinex Group, a.s. TatryTel representatives held intensive talks on cooperation with the US company AT&T Wireless Services.
