Poland restarts LTE auction

22 Apr 2015

Poland’s Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has restarted its auction of 800MHz and 2600MHz Long Term Evolution (LTE) spectrum. The sale was suspended last month when overall bids reached PLN2.8 billion (USD753 million), which was the threshold which triggered the requirement that bidders hand over a deposit payment equivalent to 25% of their respective bid amount. The bidders include existing cellcos Orange Polska, T-Mobile Poland, Polkomtel and P4 (Play), plus a company associated with Emitel, and NetNet, which is owned by Szymon Ruta, who has links to Cyfrowy Polsat and Polkomtel.
