Portuguese telecommunications sector regulator Anacom has officially awarded the fourth mobile telephony operator license to Rede Nacional de Telecomunicacoes (RNT). RNT, which submitted the only bid on the tender for the fourth operator last October, is 85 percent owned by UK-group Telephony Holding and 15% by Portuguese operator Radiomovel. The operator plans to invest EUR 40 million in the project and should launch by the end of 2009. RNT is aiming for national coverage, using the frequencies between 450 and 470 MHz, and has set an initial target of 300,000 clients. The new operator will compete with TMN, Vodafone Portugal, Optimus and Radiomovel, as well as with MVNOs Phone-IX and Zon Mobile.
