T-Hrvatski Telekom (Reuters: THTC.L, HT.ZA; Bloomberg: THTC LI, HTRA CZ, “T-HT”), Croatia’s leading telecommunications provider, announces that it has today filed an application with the Croatian Post and Electronic Communications Agency (HAKOM) for participation in the public auction for assignment of licences for use of the remaining unassigned radio frequency spectrum for the public mobile electronic communication network in the Republic of Croatia.
In September 2012, HAKOM initiated the first assignment procedure for the radio frequency spectrum in the 790-862 MHz band. Three 2x10 MHz blocks were offered and only two out of three offered blocks were assigned, one of them to T-Hrvatski Telekom. On 28 August 2013, HAKOM announced a public auction procedure for assignment of licenses for use radio frequency spectrum 801-811/842-852 MHz, which has been offered in two 2x5 blocks, with licenses valid until 18 October 2024.
HAKOM will reach a decision on the assignment of these licences by 26 November 2013.
