Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – The telecommunication authorities URTiP said a few days ago that it would admit channels for broadband radio internet. ‘I’ve received another letter from NASK and I have to take due steps’, Widold Grabos, URTiP CEO said. NASK, science and academic computer network is one of the companies, next to PTC (operator of mobile networks Era and Heyah) and E-internets from Czestochowa, which took part in a tender for 10 channels. E-internets and PTC were admitted four channels each, while NASK – two.

NASK questioned the tender results accusing URTiP to mistakenly evaluate the offer of E-internets. The regulator started a procedure of cancelling the tender but then – after exchanging letters with the other tender participants – decided withdraw from the process. But a few days ago NASK questioned the decision not to cancel the tender. ‘We do not want the tender to be nullified. But we have formal complaints against the decision of qualifying the scandalous offer of E-internets’, Maciej Kozlowski, NASK director said.

URTiP does not agree with NASK’s accusations. There is one more reason the authorities do not want to exclude E-internets. 'If we eliminated one of the participants, we would have too many channels. Then, we would have to give up a tender, which would decrease inflows to the budget by PLN 9 million (EUR 2.1 million)’, Widold Grabos believed.

(PLN 1 = EUR 0.239)
