Mobile-phone operators to pay for licence extensions, government decides

Mobile-phone operators are to be charged for extensions to their operating licences that will allow them to continue to use certain frequencies, according to a government decision on Wednesday, March 30. Frequency licences for Slovakia's two largest mobile-phone operators – Orange and Slovak Telekom, which provides mobile-phone services under the T-Mobile brand – are due to expire in August.

Parliament is set to discuss the proposal via fast-track proceedings during its current session, the TASR newswire wrote. The proposal was tabled by the Transport Ministry, although the idea of charging for licence extensions was first put forward by MPs from the Civic Conservative Party (OKS), part of the co-governing Most-Híd party caucus. The four OKS legislators said that they are ready to back the ministry's draft when it comes up for debate in parliament.
