An advert you don’t see every day

I found an interesting advert in the back of the Economist newspaper this past week.  You might not see this in the American printing, but there is no trade embargo in Singapore where my subscription is printed (sorry for the image quality, but if you can read the title area it is plenty):

3G license up for sale in Iran
3G license up for sale in Iran

Iran is auctioning a 3G license and they are calling for expression of interest.  I found it very interesting because, 1) I’ve never seen such an add in a newspaper before, and 2) it costs €20,000 to submit an expression of interest! I guess this is why only the “big boys” of the telecom world can step up and bid for licenses.
