Personnel changes and new targets for 2021
In mid-September last year, as a result of the introduction of the anti-crisis shield 3.0, Jacek Oko became the new president of UKE, replacing Marcin Cichy. During his speech before the parliamentary digitization committee, Oko declared that he would like to launch an auction for the 5G band in 2020 canceled as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. These actions, however, failed.
