Turkcell’s 3G licence award suspended

19 Sep 2007

The 3G mobile licence won last week by the country’s largest wireless operator, Turkcell, has been cancelled by the telecoms regulator. According to a report from Reuters, the licence award has been annulled by the Telecommunications Board because of the lack of competition in the 3G auction; Turkcell was the only firm to place a bid, agreeing to pay EUR321 million (USD445 million) for a concession. Turkey’s other two mobile operators, Vodafone and Avea, plus France Telecom’s Orange unit all requested tender conditions but did not bid. Turkcell has still to comment on the decision to suspend its licence, while the regulator says preparations are already under way for a new auction.
