Chile launches 700 MHz spectrum tender

Wednesday 2 October 2013 | 09:11 CET | News
Chilean telecoms regulator Subtel has launched a 700 MHz spectrum tender for provision of LTE services, Emol reports. Chile has adopted the Asia Pacific Telecommunity (APT) band plan for the 700MHz band for mobile services. Following the 2600 MHz spectrum auction held in 2012, which allowed operators to start the deployment of 4G LTE networks, Subtel will now auction 700 MHz spectrum, to enable improved 4G connection inside buildings. The bid opening is scheduled for 3 January 2014.
