Mexico's Red Compartida covering 4.5 mln digital divide residents

Monday 25 January 2021 | 11:24 CET | News
Mexico's Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) said the country's 4.5G shared network (Red Compartida) now covers over 4.5 million people living in more than 29,000 localities with less than 5,000 inhabitants. A year ago the ministry approved a change to the conditions of the licences awarded to the Altan Redes consortium at the request of its partner, investment promotion agency Promtel, with a view to prioritising smaller Mexican localities during the rollout of the network on the 700MHz band.
