Thursday 12 November 2020 | 12:47 CET | News
Colombia intends to award 5G-ready spectrum in the final quarter of 2021, a few months later than the originally scheduled deadline of Q3, according to communications industry chief Jorge Barrera Medina. "We hope that with Plan 5G, with the incentive schemes and governance models and a new spectrum management framework, we can have a 5G allocation process by the end of 2021," said Barrera at the recent Latin America Spectrum Management conference, according to BN News America.
