    Promoter – Financial Intermediary

The operation will be implemented in the years 2016 to 2017.


    After the project implementation the promoter will be able to provide 4G-based services on a very wide network footprint; the network should be also strong enough to cope with the expected high network growth. Telecommunications has the widely reported direct and indirect effect of increasing growth and creating high-quality, innovation-based employment.

    Environmental aspects

    The installation of mobile telecommunication networks does not fall under either Annex I or II of Directive 2011/92/EU as amended, and is therefore not subject to mandatory environmental impact assessment. There is no particular negative residual environmental impact expected.


    The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting authority. Therefore it is not covered by EU directives on procurement.
