Chile's comptroller approves 5G spectrum licences

Wednesday 29 September 2021 | 11:41 CET | News
Chilean telecommunications regulator Subtel said the country's Comptroller General has given its green light for licensees to start using the 5G-compatible frequencies awarded at the start of the year. Following a delay caused by June's resignation of Pamela Gidi as Chile's Undersecretary of Telecommunications and her replacement by Francisco Moreno, the Comptroller finally approved the licenses assigned in the 700 MHz, 1700 MHz and 3.5 GHz bands, with the 26 GHz ones still pending.
