Mexico's 4G shared network (Red Compartida), which was activated on the 700 MHz band by the Altan Redes consortium in March 2018, has begun to cause interference along the country's border with the US, according to an El Paso Times report. Officials from US operators Verizon and AT&T have been in contact with the Federal Communications Commission about the cross-border interference, with El Paso's fire, police, and emergency medical services' communications systems also affected after Altan reportedly begun testing its network in Juarez over the border.
