Mexican communications regulator IFT has announced plans to auction frequencies in at least four bands in the second half of 2019 following the tender of spectrum in the 2.5GHz band held earlier this year. The watchdog said spectrum to be made available include a national, 10MHz duplex block in the AWS band paired between the 1.7GHz and 2.1GHz bands as well as more frequencies in the 2.5GHz and 2.6GHz bands. Frequencies in the 824-849 and 869-894 MHz band will also be tendered for social use.
