UKE announced tender for two general exclusive frequency licences for frequencies in the 1800 MHz spectrum band to be used in public telecommunications network.
On 21 May 2007, the President of UKE announced the start of a tender for two general exclusive frequency licences for frequencies in the 1710 – 1730 MHz and 1805 – 1825 MHz spectrum bands, each covering 49 radio duplex channels (a duplex channel means a double-frequency channel consisting of two single-frequency channels, 200 kHz bandwidth each, constituting a logical whole) with duplex interval of 95 MHz.
The frequencies in question may be used in the public telecommunications network (i.e. mobile and fixed telephony, radio access to the Internet etc.) on the entire territory of Poland until 31 December 2022.
Each Tenderer is allowed to submit not more than two offers. Each offer will be considered independently. A minimum amount of one-time charge for licences for frequencies is of PLN 1.960.000 in the case of one offer, which constitutes 50% of annual fee for the right of disposal of 49 radio channels during the first year of the frequency license for mobile network.
The offer should be submitted in the form specified in the Terms of Reference of the tender not later than 24 August 2007, during weekdays between 9 am and 3 pm in the Main Chancellery of UKE [Kancelaria Główna], 18/20 Kasprzaka Street, Warsaw.
The criteria of evaluation are as follows:
1) the amount declared by the Tenderer (110 points),
2) assurance of conditions for competition (200 points),
3) financial credibility (6 points),
4) commitments undertaken by the Tenderer within the tender (24 points).
The most important criterion is the assurance of conditions for competition. The evaluation of the impact on the competition will be carried out based on the whole frequency resources for mobile telephony systems which are of the disposal of the Tenderer as well as the opinion of the President of the Office for Competition and Consumer Protection.
The maximum number of points that may be obtained in the tender is 340. The President of UKE has not defined a qualifying minimum, i.e. a minimum number of points to be obtained by a offer so that the Tenderer could qualify as an entity selected within the tender.
