Ukraine Awards 3G Licences

Comments Off on Ukraine Awards 3G Licences 4

Ukraine’s big three mobile network operators this week won licences to offer 3G services.

An auction of spectrum in the 1900-2100 MHz band on Monday raised a total of 8.77 billion hryvnia (€274 million), based on separate announcements from the operators.

Turkcell-owned Life was the biggest spender in the contest, securing lot one for UAH3.36 billion (€105 million). MTS won lot two for UAH2.72 billion and Kyivstar said it paid UAH2.7 billion for lot three.

Under the terms of their 15-year licences, the telcos are required to launch services within six months and cover the Ukraine’s regional centres within 18 months.

Ukraine is behind much of the rest of the world when it comes to launching 3G services, but the country’s mobile operators are confident they will be quick off the mark now licences have been awarded. Original post at Total Telecom
