Orange Polska received a frequency assignment decision

 

On June 27, 2014, the President of the Office of Electronic Communications assigned 908.1–914.9 MHz and 953.1–959.9 MHz frequency blocks in the 900 MHz band to Orange Polska. The assignment is for a further 15 years (to July 6, 2029), is valid in the whole country and is technology-neutral. The requirement is to cover 90% of Poland’s territory with telecommunication services provided using these frequencies. However, in case of Orange Polska, such coverage was already over 99.5% as of the end of March 2014.

 

Orange Polska uses the 900 MHz band to provide 2G services as well as data and voice services based on the 3G technology (UMTS 900). Orange is the first mobile operator to pay a fee for frequency assignment for another period under the amended Telecommunication Law. The fee has been set at PLN 358.1 million and will be paid within 14 days.
