NMHH reveals bidders for new Hungary mobile licence

12 Dec 2011

Hungary’s telecoms regulator the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH) last Friday published a list of companies bidding in the forthcoming auction of a 900MHz mobile licence in the country. The watchdog says that in addition to the three incumbent mobile network operators – Telenor (formerly Pannon), Magyar Telekom’s T-Mobile unit and Vodafone – the agency has received applications to bid for 900MHz frequency blocks from state-owned postal company Magyar Posta, Romania-based cableco RCS&RDS and Vietnamese telco Viettel Group. Local press reports have suggested Magyar Posta is looking to participate via a consortium group that includes the Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) and the Hungarian Development Bank (MFB). The NMHH will assess the validity of the applications on 2 January.
