Mexico to free up 700 MHz band by 20 December

Wednesday 25 November 2015 | 13:55 CET | News
Mexico's Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) hopes to free up the whole 700 MHz band by 20 December, reports Telesemana, citing SCT head Gerardo Ruiz Esparza. In a press conference the minister said the frequency will be made available a month ahead of schedule due to the need to proceed with the formal launch of the shared network tender in January 2016. The Mexican cities of Piedras Negras, Ciudad Acuna are currently using part of the 700 MHz band for broadcasting purposes but are set to switch off their signal by the end of the year.
