Cyfrowy digging into Polkomtel through billionaire owner

Solorz-Zak Said to Lead Polkomtel Sale With $6.6 Billion Bid - Businessweek


Cyfrowy Polsat S.A. operates as an MVNO via an agreement signed with Era back in 2006. In an ongoing bidding process for the ownership of Polkomtel, the leading bid is now from Zygmunt Solorz-Zak, a billionaire who owns cable operator Cyfrowy Polsat S.A. If Solorz-Zak wins the bidding process and passes the resulting hurdles of payments and regulatory approval, then the quad-play operator could soon have a massive mobile arm to it, in the form of Polkomtel.
