By determination of 10 November 2011 1, ANACOM approved a decision on the authorization regime governing Mobile-Satellite Services (MSS) systems in the 2 GHz band, in the scope of which the Authority decided to make the provision in the national territory of MSS systems in the 1980-2010 MHz and 2170-2200 MHz frequency bands, by applicants selected under the terms of Decision No. 2009/449/EC, subject to the allocation of a right of use, covering both the satellite component and the ground component (CGC).
Further to the application submitted by Echostar Mobile Limited (EML) to ANACOM on 15 April 2014, this Authority, by determination of 12 June 2015 2, approved the allocation to this company of a right of use for frequencies for the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) on national territory, in the 1995-2010 MHz and 2185-2200MHz frequency sub-bands, covering both the satellite component and the ground component (CGC).
In this context, the conditions to which EML is subject in the scope of MSS provision and conditions attached to the allocated right of use were established under the draft certificate in annex to the referred determination, which was submitted to the prior hearing of EML, under article 100 et seq. of the former Administrative Procedure Code (approved by Decree-Law No. 442/91, of 15 November), having been set a deadline of 10 working days for the company to assess the matter in writing.
By determination of 25 June 2015 3, ANACOM granted EML, upon a request from the latter, an additional period of 10 working days for the company to assess in writing, if it so wished, the draft certificate approved by the referred decision of 12 June.
Having EML’s comments been received prior to the deadline, the corresponding prior hearing report was drafted, including a summary of the company’s position, as well as ANACOM’s views thereon. This report substantiates the options taken in this decision, and is deemed to be an integral part hereof.
In the light of the above, the Management Board of ANACOM, pursuant to its Decisions of 10 November 2011 and 12 June 2015, to articles 15, 16, 16-A, 27, 30 and 32, all of the Electronic Communications Law, and under point q) of paragraph 1 of article 26 of its Statutes, approved by Decree-Law No. 39/2015, of 16 March, hereby determines to issue to EML the Certificate of the right of use for frequencies for operation of 2 GHz Mobile-Satellite Services on national territory, in annex to this determination, and deemed to be an integral part hereof.
