Kosovo Telecom wins licence in Albania

Kosovo Telecom has won the competition for the fourth mobile telephone operator in Albania.

Even though no other company has completely fulfilled the criteria to be considered for the competition, the Albanian Government has decided to accept the offer of Kosovo Telecom, pending a vote by the Albanian Parliament.

The consortium of Kosovo Telecom and other partners has offered over 7 million EUR for the licence and is expected to further invest in the network.

This is the first case that a Kosovar company invests out of Kosovo. Kosovo Telecom, through its mobile operator “VALA” is the market leader in Kosovo.
