Hungary Court Delays State Mobile Network, Nepszabadsag Reports

A Hungarian court suspended the opening of a state-run mobile network until the resolution of an appeal by existing providers, Nepszabadsag reported, citing a court decision.

The Budapest court decided on June 25 that the state company may not use the 900 Mhz frequency it won this year as Magyar Telekom Nyrt. and Telenor ASA (TEL) disputed the tender results, the newspaper said.
