NMHH receives five bids for 26GHz frequencies

8 Feb 2012

The Hungarian telecoms industry watchdog the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH), yesterday confirmed it has received five applications from companies wishing to secure frequencies in the 26GHz band. The regulator says it will begin reviewing the bids – from Magyar Telekom, Telenor (formerly Pannon), GTS Hungary, Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) and Vodafone – from today. The regulator announced the tender in November 2011, through which it is offering 26 blocks of spectrum in the 26GHz band – suitable for 3G and 4G mobile services. RealDeal.hu reports that the frequency allocation will hopefully boost the efficiency with which network capacity is used in the country and provide added stimulus for operators to invest in new infrastructure and encourage new players into the mobile market. Further, the watchdog hopes the sale will help support its auction of spectrum in the 900MHz band, which is currently underway.
