Kiev’s District Administrative Court has suspended the decision to cancel the licence of CDMA operator Intertelecom.
On 1st April, Ukraine’s regulator NCCIR (National Commission for State Regulation of Communications & Informatization) confirmed that it planned to cancel Intertelecom’s licence as it had not received payment from the operator.
After its please to extend the payment deadline were refused, Intertelecom began legal proceedings against the regulator’s decision. The court has now ruled that until such time as it has reached a final decision on this case, the operator’s licences remain valid.
In addition to this decision to cancel Intertelecom’s licence, the court has also suspended the NCCIR’s move to revoke CDMA-800 licences that Intertelecom was obliged to relinquish due to spectrum refarming agreements that the regulator has in place with the country’s main operators.
