Mexico launches tender for 'Red Troncal' wholesale fibre-optic project

Monday 2 July 2018 | 10:52 CET | News
Mexican state-owned operator Telecomm has launched the tender for bids to develop the country's wholesale fibre-optic network (Red Troncal) after completing the public consultation stage. Telecomm was awarded the concession to the fibre-optic backbone network of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) in 2015, and was tasked with drawing up a three-year investment and infrastructure development plan. In its statement, Telecomm said the tender will be offered via a public–private partnership (PPP), with all interested parties needing to provide a MXN 80 million guarantee by 10 October.
