Albania’s Electronic and Postal Communications Authority, AKEP, has launched a tender for two 3G mobile licenses with a starting bid of 4 million euro.
3G, the third-generation standard for mobile phones, enables simultaneous use of speech and data services on a cell network, while also providing mobile broadband access to laptops and smart phones.
Vodafone was the first mobile operator in Albania to offer 3G data services, after it won a tender issued by AKEP in November 2010 for €31.4 million.
The second 3G license was awarded in 2011 to Albania’s Mobile Communication, AMC,
Apart from AMC and Vodafone, two other mobile operators, Eagle Mobile and Plus operate in Albania.
Eagle Mobile is owned by the Turkish group Calik Holding, while Plus Mobile is owned by consortium of local businesses and Kosovo Telecom.
