Colombia to hold 700MHz, 1.9GHz tenders later this year

Tuesday 11 June 2019 | 11:07 CET | News
Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) has announced that tenders for spectrum in the 700MHz and 1.9GHz bands will finally be held later this year just a few days after the country's congress approved an ICT reform bill. "With the bill we now have a stronger connectivity plan in place that allows us to prioritise many more regions that we would have been unable to reach otherwise," said ICT minister Sylvia Constain, adding that the 700MHz frequencies above all will enable operators to bring quality 4G connectivity to rural regions and pave the way for 5G.
