By investing more than €94.4 million in the mobile frequency bands 800 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz, and 2600 MHz, Telemach Croatia, through a public auction organized by the Croatian Regulatory Agency for Network Activities (HAKOM), ensures the prerequisites for further improving the coverage and quality of mobile services in the period of the next 15 years, starting from October 2024.
With the official end of the public auction procedure for the assignment of radio frequency spectrum for mobile networks HT assured by far the largest spectrum share which is another key strategic lever for further development of its already leading and fastest mobile network.
We are very satisfied with the results of this electronically conducted multi-round auction, in which all available spectrum for national coverage was allocated, as well as part of the spectrum for smaller operators at regional levels, HAKOM Council director Tonko Obuljen points out for ICTbusiness.info.
