The operator was issued various blocks in the AWS band in February, in addition to those obtained during an auction organised by the regulator in 2010. With the change authorized by the IFT, Telcel will now move from the frequencies of 1730-1735/2130-2135 MHz (Block C) to 1720-1725 MHz/2120-2125 MHz (Block B1) throughout the country.
