Mexico postpones shared network announcement again

Monday 18 July 2016 | 13:16 CET | News
Mexico's Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) said the winner of the long-delayed tender process to build and operate a nationwide shared network will be announced on 17 November 2016. The announcement had previously been pushed back to 28 September from August due to the number and complexity of the bids submitted. The IFT said bids for the USD 7.5 billion scheme to roll out a country-wide 4G network must be submitted by 20 October and that the contract will be signed as soon as the winner meets the necessary criteria and by 27 January 2017 at the latest.
