First 4G tender to be held on Jan 31
The opening of envelopes with price offers from mobile communications operators for the introduction of 4G connection in Ukraine will take place on January 31 this year, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.
"When I was elected president, Ukraine didn't have 3G connection because of corruption. Shortly, we will open the envelope for 4G connection. We have many companies ready to invest in that," he said at a meeting with investors at the Ukraine House in Davos on Thursday, January 25.
Poroshenko noted high interest in the tender for 4G.
Earlier, a well-informed source told Interfax-Ukraine that the National Commission for State Regulation of Communications and Information Technology (NCCR) would schedule the tender to buy the 4G communications license for the 2,600 MHz frequency range for January 31, 2018.
