Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov 22 / Trend, E. Ismayilov /
Provision of 3G services by Azerbaijani mobile operator Azercell are not contrary to the existing technical documents needed to provide these services, Elmir Velizade Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technologies told reporters commenting the dispute between cable operator B & BTV and Azercell on Tuesday.
Velizadeh called a license to provide 3G services and the availability of frequencies among the documents necessary for providing 3G services.
Previously, the company B&BTV (cable TV operator) appealed to the Baku economic- administrative court N1 with a letter stating that the use of frequencies by the mobile operator Azercell for 3G services is illegal.
The court secured the claim of B& BTV to the State Commission for Radio Frequencies on removal of frequencies suspension process.
As reported earlier by the head of Azercell Ali Agan, launching 3G services with the participation of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the State Commission for Radio Frequencies shows the full legitimacy of their provision. In addition, he reiterated that the frequencies provided by the operators do not use B&BTV.
State Commission for Radio Frequencies presented to Azerbaijani mobile operators frequency 1965-1980 and 2155-2170 MHz for service provision in the standard of 3G. This decision was challenged by B & BTV, on the balance of which these frequencies are.
