Argentina readying new 4G spectrum tender - report

Monday 19 March 2018 | 09:24 CET | News
Argentina is looking to raise as much as USD 800 million via an auction of 90MHz of 4G spectrum to be held later this year, according to an unnamed government source cited by Reuters. The tender is expected to consist of 60MHz that local operator Arlink received in an auction for spectrum in the 700MHz band held in 2015 that was later returned, plus 30MHz held by state operator Arsat.
