Colombia to hold 700MHz and 1.9GHz band tender in H2

Wednesday 6 March 2019 | 14:00 CET | News
Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) has finally confirmed that it intends to hold an auction for spectrum in the 700MHz and 1.9GHz bands in the second half of this year. The announcement comes over 5 years since the country first revealed plans to auction 700MHz band frequencies and over 2 years since it published a resolution inviting interested bidders to express their interest. Mintic is looking to auction a total of 70MHz in the 700MHz band, plus 5MHz more in the 1.9GHz band.
