Dominican Republic launches AWS spectrum tender

Monday 13 November 2017 | 15:22 CET | News
The Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Indotel) has announced the launch of a tender for a 30MHz block of spectrum in the 1700-2100MHz (AWS) band that remained unsold in a previous auction dating back to 2014. The watchdog will publish the corresponding specifications on 15 November with Indotel simply confirming that the aim of the tender is to "ensure free, fair and effective competition in the mobile market by reducing the existing concentration of spectrum."
