The magnetic-dipole hyperfine-structure (hfs) constants for 15 levels of the 5<i>p</i><sup>2</sup>6p configuration of Te II were recently observed. To carry out the theoretical analysis of these experimental data, the intermediate coupling coefficients for all 21 levels belonging to 5<i>p</i><sup>2</sup>6<i>p</i> were calculated. The theoretical <i>g<sub>J</sub></i> factors show good agreement with the experimental values known from Zeeman-effect data. The hyperfine-structure analysis was performed by the effective-operator formalism. On the basis of the experimentally determined A hfs constants the values of the effective radial parameters <i>a<sup>ksk1</sup></i> have been obtained in two versions: in version 1 we have taken into consideration all 15 known A values; in version 2 the A constant for the 111°<sub>5/2</sub> level was eliminated. The following values for the hfs parameters a<sub>kSk1</sub> in these two versions were obtained: a<sub>5p</sub><sup>01</sup> = -107.7 and -108.8 mK, a<sub>5p</sub><sup>12</sup> = -170.3 and -151.9 mK, a<sub>5p</sub><sup>10</sup> = 1.1 and 1.9 mK, a<sub>6p</sub><sup>01</sup> = -21.8 and -10.9 mK, a<sub>5p</sub><sup>12</sup> = -6.2 and -29.5 mK, a<sub>6p</sub><sup>12</sup> = 1.5 and -6.7 mK, respectively.
