4G Tender Awaits Printing

The long-awaited tender for 4G wireless services cannot go ahead because the official publication in which such tenders must be announced is out of print, Interfax reported Monday.

Communications and IT oversight service Roskomnadzor said Friday that it had prepared plans for tenders for four sets of LTE frequencies to be used by 4G providers.

"We have everything ready, the conditions have been worked out. We started looking at the eighth government resolution and noticed that the Konkursny Torgi journal, specified directly in the resolution, has disappeared," Roskomnadzor deputy chief Oleg Ivanov said.
