El Salvador to hold tender of AWS spectrum next month

Friday 8 November 2019 | 11:41 CET | News
El Salvador telecommunications watchdog Siget has confirmed that it will finally tender 120MHz of spectrum in the 1700MHz/2100MHz (AWS) bands on 05 December several months after launching the auction process. The regulator said it will tender 12 lots of 2×5MHz frequencies covering the whole of the country in 20-year concessions, having opted for a public auction with a view to "boosting competition, opening the market to new entrants, promoting mobile broadband penetration and reducing the digital divide".
