Paraguay planning auction in 700 MHz, 2.6 GHz bands

Tuesday 24 November 2015 | 15:04 CET | News
Paraguay is set to release spectrum for LTE use in the 700 MHz and 2.6 GHz bands once it has completed its auction of frequencies in the 1,700-2100 MHz (AWS) band, reports local daily Ultima Hora, citing Teresita Palacios, acting president of the country's communications regulator Conatel. The AWS auction was finally launched last month, with bidders given until 03 December to apply for a maximum of 30 MHz per operator, delaying the release of spectrum in the 700 MHz band, initially scheduled for this year.
