Macedonia’s (FYROM) Agency for Electronic Communications has relaunched the tender of two 3G mobile licences that were left unsold in an auction last November. On offer are two 2100MHz band UMTS concessions, both including 2x15MHz FDD and 1x5MHz TDD frequency blocks. The licences are valid for ten years, and carry obligations to roll out a third-generation network covering 50% of the Republic’s population within a year, rising to 80% in three years. Commercial services must be launched within six months of receiving a concession. Services covered by the licences include mobile, fixed-wireless and internet provision. A minimum one-off licence fee is set at EUR5 million (USD6.5 million). The deadline for submission of bids is 40 days from the date of publishing the public tender in the government’s official gazette. Cosmofon launched FYROM’s first 3G service last year, and T-Mobile became the country’s second UMTS licensee when it was the sole bidder in November’s auction.
