Change of WiMax reservation for Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa Sp. z o.o.


2009-12-23

The President of Office of Electronic Communications on the request of Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa has agreed to amend the timetable for the development of WiMax networks. In return, the company will cover with wireless Internet network 966 municipalities in Poland up to the year 2012. About 40 percent of these areas are known as "white spots" on the map of access the Internet.

On 22 December 2009 the President of Office of Electronic Communications changed frequency reservation in 3600 - 3800 MHz band made by the President of Office of Telecommunications and Post Regulation by a decision no. DZC-WDO-5104-6/04 (13) of 28 December 2004 for Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa sp. z o.o. amended by a decision of a President of UKE no. DZC-WAP-5106-5/07 (26) of 17 June 2008.

After examining the company's application to amend the schedule of network development, the President of UKE altered the reservation decision in part concerning the obligation (in percent) of coverage with network of the reservation area and the population residing in that area. At the same time, amended decision was accompanied by the "Summary of municipalities to be covered with the frequency in 3600 - 3800 MHz band by PTC Sp. z o.o. up to 31 December 2012."

According to the decision, PTC has been obliged to cover with network in 3600 - 3800 MHz band 966 municipalities up to the year 2012.  Municipalities are detailed in the attachment.

383 municipalities set out in the attachment (approximately 40% of municipalities from the summary) are defined as "white spots".

The definition of "white spots" was determined on the basis of the ŚrZ ratio (ratio of the average number of applications on lack of access to the Internet in Poland on of 10 000 households) located on the website www.mapa.uke.gov.pl (according to the situation in March 2009).

The ŚrZ ratio value is as follows:

Among the rest of municipalities indicated in the attachment are:

  1. 88 municipalities indicated as 2 (ca. 9% of municipalities from the summary);
  2. 92 municipalities indicated as 3 (ca 10% of municipalities from the summary);
  3. 59 municipalities indicated as 4 (ca 5% of municipalities from the summary);
  4. 344 municipalities indicated as 5 (ca 35% of municipalities from the summary).

While altering the decision the President of UKE has taken into account interest of the company and the public interest and regulatory objectives set out in the Telecommunications Act, particularly those relating to infrastructure development.
