The winner of the third licence for a mobile phone operator in Slovakia will be named within a fortnight, chair of the Telecommunications Office, Milan Luknar, said.

“Originally the tender terms were prepared to evaluate twelve to fourteen bids. Therefore I suppose evaluation and announcement of the winner shouldnt take more than fourteen days,” stated Mr. Luknar.

The market regulator received three bids for the right to GSM, UMTS and FS frequencies. Telefonica O2 Czech Republic, a subsidiary of Spanish company Telefonica, Austrian Mobilkom Austria and Czech company Radiokomunikace, submitting the bid together with Czech and Slovak investment company Penta, confirmed their interest and bids to SITA in the aforementioned tender.

The regulator is required by law to issue the licence within four weeks after the completion of the tender.
