Albania's telecoms regulator AKEP has confirmed AMC as the winner of the country's second 3G license. After having been previously announced as the highest bidder and having met all the technical criteria of the tender AMC was granted the right to implement 3G technology in Albania.
Vodafone is currently the monopoly 3G service provider in the country.
AMC CEO, Mr. Dimitris Blatsios said: "By acquiring the licence to offer 3G technology to our subscribers we once again proved that innovation is the core component of our growth. AMC has come a long way since it started, when we were proud to be the first ones to bring the benefits of Mobile Communication to the Market.
"We already started working to bring 3G to all major cities by the end of this year and continue the expansion further into 2012 in order for everyone to benefit from this technology."
The amount paid has not been revealed by the company. AMC is majority owned by Greece's Cosmote.
