The agreement on joint activities, if implemented, stipulates equal access to radio frequencies for all participants in the mobile wireless communication.

In particular, the mobile network operators involved in the transaction will develop and agree with the antimonopoly authority on the conditions for the use of the infrastructure and/or the joint use of radio frequencies and the conditions for the provision of infrastructure for mobile virtual network operators*.
