Vodafone complains about Czech frequencies auction

Vodafone Czech Republic has lodged a complaint to the European Commission over an auction of mobile frequencies, a spokeswoman for the company said. In July, the Czech telecommunications regulator launched a rerun auction of frequencies that will allow operators to provide new 4G services; Vodafone complains that the rules of the new auction favour new competitors. The mobile phone operator also filed a lawsuit with a Czech court, and a petition to the country’s anti-monopoly agency over the auction.
