Colombia to hold 5G tender in December - minister

Thursday 24 June 2021 | 11:28 CET | News
Colombia will finally hold its delayed tender of 5G-ready spectrum in December 2021, according to the country's connectivity undersecretary Walid David. The confirmation follows last year's consultation on the government's auction plans that revealed interest from six local operators, with the 3.5GHz band receiving the most expressions of interest. The band has already been made available for a series of 5G trials ahead of the tender.
