Hungary's telecoms regulator, the NMHH has dismissed two companies from bidding in the forthcoming 900Mhz radio spectrum auction.
Romania-based RCS&RDS had failed to meet the requirement, as specified in the tender notice, on outstanding market surveillance fees of companies controlled by the applicant, meanwhile the application submitted by the Vietnamese Viettel Group was considered formally invalid on numerous grounds, beyond the possibility of rectification.
Applications by Magyar Telekom, Telenor, Vodafone and a consortium comprising Magyar Posta, Magyar Villamosmu"vek and MFB Invest have been found formally valid and therefore suitable for registration.
As the next step in the auction procedure, the bidding stage is set to commence on 5 January 2012.
