Conatel to probe Personal Paraguay 4G launch

Monday 21 December 2015 | 15:08 CET | News
Paraguay's telecoms regulator Conatel has announced that it will investigate the launch of LTE by Personal (Telecom Italia) on the grounds that the operator failed to seek its consent for the activation of such a service. Conatel said it would also look into Personal's plans to "re-engineer" the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz bands for 4G use. Personal launched 4G services in the capital Asuncion just a day after Conatel announced the allocation of six blocks of mobile frequencies in the 1,700-2100 MHz (AWS) band to Claro (America Movil) and Tigo (Millicom) for a total of USD 90 million.

This is frigging hilarious - the msot corrupt Gov entity I personally had to deal with is pissed off because Personal beat them to the punch. You see Conatel is back dealing their Mhz frequencies from 700 on up and of course - Tigo has been eyeing the 900 band for quite some time - Conatel botched several White spaces deals back channeling with Reiders owners who own the 900 - give me a break. Tigo got pissed cried to conatel and now Personal gets the hammer - these guys are a bunch of monkeys. They want to keep the country obscure from the world so they can continue their illegal activities. The greed in this place is unbelievable. You don't like my comment? I have ton's of data to back up adn VALIDATE the bullshit these people are feeding the media.
