Jordan’s Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) announced that it did not receive any applications for 2.5 GHZ band licences by the 27 June deadline. In mid-May, the TRC opened the doors for the country’s mobile operators to submit applications for the licence, which allows for providing LTE services. Director of the TRC radio spectrum management department Mohammad Alwathiq Shaqrah told the Jordan Times that the TRC’s council of commissioners will look into the issue. The TRC announced in January that it received a request from Zain for obtaining required frequencies for extending the LTE service in return for JOD 50 million. In mid-May, TRC Chief Commissioner Fadi Kawar said if Zain was still interested in obtaining the licence it should apply in line with the conditions highlighted in the regulator’s document.
