Consultation opened for fourth mobile licence

31 Mar 2008

Portugal’s telecoms regulator Anacom has begun the process which could lead to the award of the country’s fourth mobile licence. A 30-day public consultation period has been opened for a 15-year concession offering spectrum in the 450MHz band, and this will be then followed by a 25-day period during which interested bidders will be able to submit their proposals, Thomson Financial reports. Portugal’s three existing cellular licensees – TMN, Vodafone and Optimus – are barred from the new auction.
