Argentina cooperative Catel awarded MVNO licence

Friday 8 December 2017 | 10:45 CET | News
Argentina's communications regulator Enacom has agreed to grant an MVNO licence to the Catel cooperative, confirming earlier reports. The grouping of 31 cooperatives will begin offering MVNO services early next year in the Buenos Aires, Chubut, Cordoba, La Pampa, Mendoza, Misiones, Rio Negro, Santa Cruz and Santa Fe provinces, reaching over 2 million users, said the watchdog. Catel will use Telefonica's Movistar network for the mobile telephony service, with member cooperatives also permitted to offer quad-play services in the areas in which they operate.
