Ireland- Mobile Licence Terms- 1999

This document is a licence granted by the Office of the Director of Telecommunications Regulation (“ODTR”) for the provision of mobile services within and to and from Ireland.  This licence was issued prior to the adoption of the new EU telecommunications regulatory framework.  Since the new regulatory framework came into effect in 2003, with the exception of authorizations relating to the use of spectrum, almost all electronic communications services in Ireland are now subject to a general authorization regime.

·                    the scope of the licence;

·                    enforcement and amendment;
