Hungary's National Communications Authority (NHH) asked bidders in a tender for new mobile communications frequencies to submit further information, daily Népszabadság reported.
The NHH asked bidders to detail the pace at which they can expand coverage and in which cities they will build up their networks. The request means either competition is tight or the offers are unrealistically low compared to the networks the bidders promised to build, Népszabadság said.
The two frontrunners each bid HUF 44 billion – HUF 48 billion and promised 70%-76% coverage, the paper wrote.
The NHH called the tender in October and the deadline for bidding was December 12. NHH head Dániel Pataki said after the deadline that the tender results would be announced in January. (MTI – Econews)
