Bulgaria cancels mobile licences tender again

Date: 11.12.2008

Bulgaria's telecoms regulator has said that it has cancelled the tender for two mobile telecommunications licences after recieving no bids by the November 27 deadline. The decision was taken on December 3.

Three companies were reported to have bought tender paperwork before November 24, including Globul, the country's second-largest mobile operator, and two companies with no operations in the telecom sector.

It was the second time that the Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) had to cancel a tender for a mobile licence in 2008. In July, the CRC had to scrap another tender after drawing only one bid from Liechtenstein-registered virtubal mobile network operator Telco AG and even that one did not fully meet the tender criteria.

The Bulgarian mobile services market - split between Telekom Austria's Mobiltel, OTE's Globul and Vivatel, the operator that is now being folded back into the country's dominant fixed-line operator BTC - topped 2.1 billion leva in 2007, making up 61 per cent of the total revenue on the telecoms market, according to regulatory data.
