Mexico to release 2.5GHz, 700 MHz spectrum in 2015

Thursday 11 September 2014 | 15:50 CET | News
Mexico's Ministry of Finance does not expect to receive revenues from the exploitation of spectrum in the 2.5 GHz and 700 MHz frequency bands in the fiscal year 2015, reports El Economista. As a result, the Ministry will no longer receive USD 350-400 million to keep the frequencies idle. Mexico's Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) plans to submit by February 2015 a program of reorganization of spectrum bands including the 2.5 GHz and 700 MHz frequencies.
