Monday 10 February 2014 | 09:27 CET | News
According to the Polish mobile operator Polkomtel, which runs the network Plus, regulator UKE's replies to enquiries from LTE auction applicants mean that Orange Poland and T-Mobile Poland would be able to share even more spectrum than expected on the basis of the auction conditions. One of the UKE's replies indicates a green light for the operators to share not only three blocks in the 800 MHz band (15 MHz duplex totalling 30 MHz), but four (20 MHz duplex totalling 40 MHz).
