Mexico's IFT recovers Megacable spectrum

Monday 7 August 2017 | 10:33 CET | News
Mexico's Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) has completed the retrieval of 166MHz from the 2.5GHz band concession used by cable operator Megacable, reports business daily El Economista. The process was initiated in November, with compensation payable to Megacable for the asset determined by the country's Administration and Valuation of National Assets Institute. However, the MXN 74 million in compensation finally paid to Megacable for the asset was far less than the MXN 101-117 million proposed by the operator, said the report.
