The Bahamas Utilities Regulation and Competition Authority (URCA) has once again delayed the tender for the country's second mobile telephony licence, reports local daily Tribune 242, citing unnamed sources. Although no reason was given for the new delay to the long-running selection process, due to enter its final phase this week, one source said it had been "pushed back" while another confirmed that the auction was "imminent". Cable Bahamas is competing with Virgin Mobile for the mobile licence after Digicel pulled out of the tender process.
