DTT tender for Romania soon
Quoted in Financiarul, Catalin Marinescu, the president of the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications of Romania (ANCOM), said that postponing the ASO date by three years in late 2010 had in his view been a mistake.
The decision had stopped a DTT tender taking place at that time “dead in its tracks”.
It is now expected that a new tender for DTT will be issued soon and licences awarded during the summer.
Instead of being auctioned separately, as before, licences for all six multiplexes will be held at the same time.
Marinescu also said the selection procedure will be competitive rather than comparative (i.e. a beauty contest), as had previously been the case.
