Starting price of 4G licenses in Ukraine estimated at UAH 6.3 bln – NCCR
The starting price of licenses for the launch of a 4G network in Ukraine is estimated at UAH 6.3 billion, Oleksandr Zhyvotovsky, the head of the National Commission for Communications Regulation (NCCR), has said
"The budget should receive significant sums from the sale of licenses. The initial cost of licenses, which we propose to the government for approval, will amount to a total of UAH 6.3 billion," he said at a government meeting.
Zhyvotovsky specified the cost of licenses for the launch of 4G communications in the range of 2600 MHz will be UAH 2.3 billion, 1800 MHz some UAH 4 billion.
"The licenses should be sold at a reasonable price. And the only way to justify the price is to sell through an open tender. Such a sale should stimulate further investments in Ukraine, while operators, who will buy 4G licenses, should invest in the development of infrastructure in future," the NCCR head added.
