Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) has launched a request for expressions of interest in a potential auction of spectrum in the E band (60GHz-90GHz). In its statement, the ministry said interested bidders have until 18 February to submit their applications for the 71-76GHz and 81-86GHz frequencies, which it said are ideal for "last mile connections and the deployment of cells in urban areas" in addition to optimising 4G coverage and ensuring higher data transmission speed.
