UPC Polska to sell on Aster assets

March 6, 2013 00.05 Europe/London By Chris Dziadul

UPC Polska has entered into an agreement with the alternative telco Netia under which it will sell the latter some of the infrastructure it acquired from Aster, at one time Polandís fourth largest cable operator.
In a statement, UPC Polska says this is to comply with the conditions imposed by the competition authority UOKiK when it approved the sale of Aster to UPC Polska on September 5, 2011.
This required UPC Polska to sell some of Asterís assets to an independent third party by March 5 this year.
UPC Polska says that more details about the sale of the assets will be announced once the president of the UOKiK has given his decision on the matter.
