Spectrum allocation agreement reached for Wataniya Palestine

29 Jul 2008

Following reports earlier this month that mobile operator Wataniya Palestine was close to receiving mobile spectrum, reports from Qatari news source The Peninsula claim that an agreement has now been reached. Official confirmation is understood to have come from the Palestinian Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology (MTIT), stating that spectrum is to be released to the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), which will in turn allocate spectrum to Wataniya. Following the release of spectrum, construction and commercial launch of mobile services will be possible. No confirmed dates for release of the spectrum have been announced however.
