The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has issued a consultation document on the possible licensing of a third mobile network operator. Interested parties are invited to respond by 3 August. A key aspect of the consultation is whether a licence, if issued, should be for a mobile network operator or for a mobile virtual network operator. Respondents are also asked to provide comments on practical issues such as the range of frequency that could be offered. Any licence would be technology-neutral. Outgoing TRA director-general Andreas Avgousti, who recently resigned and is due to leave his post during the summer, has always held out the possibility of a third licence holder, in spite of penetration levels in excess of 100 per cent.
