Telco

The National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) is expected to offer licenses for frequencies in the 800 MHz band for 20 years, rather than the earlier planned 15, local business daily Világgazdaság reported this morning.

Representatives of the NMHH informed the ‘paper it had issued an updated draft of the tender for the spectrum based on consultations with industry insiders. A tender for the frequencies is expected to be called at the end of April, with expected revenue of HUF 125 billion.

NMHH said in November that tenders for unused frequencies in the 2,600 MHz, 1,800 MHz, 900 MHz, 800 MHz and 26 GHz bands would be called, with the aim of expanding mobile broadband internet access to parts of the country where such services are not available at present.
