/ Updated on 24.01.2008

ICP launches consultation in order to obtain declarations of interest regarding the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS).

The consultation aims to identify the number and profile of operators/service providers interested in establishing networks and/or provide services based upon UMTS, in its terrestrial component, as well as discover the interest and needs which form the basis for defining eventual access and licensing conditions, including the evaluation of the spectrum required for these purposes.

UMTS is a third generation mobile and wireless communications system that combines the utilisation of terrestrial and satellite components and is capable of providing innovative multimedia services compared to second generation systems such as GSM.

The deadline for submission of declarations of interest ends on June 30, 1999, and the Consultation Document is available in the Public Attendance office of the head office of ICP, on any working day, from 9.00 to 16.00 in Avenida José Malhoa, no. 12., 1070 Lisbon, and also via the ICP Internet site.
