Orange Jordan denied 3G licence

4 Jun 2009

Orange Jordan, the only company to submit an offer for a 3G licence in Jordan, has had its bid rejected by the country’s telecom regulator writes According to the report, a spokeswoman for the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) said the bid was refused because the operator failed to abide by the rules of the tender. She added that Orange Jordan’s bid did not comply with the financial or technical aspects of the process nor did it present a financial bond of JOD10 million (USD14.2 million). Philippe Vogeleer, Orange Jordan’s chief strategy officer expressed his surprise at the decision, adding that as far as he is concerned the bid met ‘every single condition’, although he did admit that its submission contained questions relating to tax payments and various technical issues.
