This crops up all through the text, e.g.
'Wel is dit deels het gevolg geweest van de "windfall profit" die een aantal landen wist te boeken met de UMTS-veilingen' and
'In de strijd om marktaandeel werden hogen prijzen betaald in de UMTS veilingen'.

Explanation:
UMTS auction(s)

Go to e.g.:
www.indiatimes.com/040800toi/04info18.htm

on Germany's auction of UMTS mobile phone frequencies.

These auctions (organized or being organized in The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland,Germany, UK,...) earn the governments involved quite a tidy sum and have upset some of the telecom operators (due to very high biddings, etc...)
