Monday 7 March 2016 | 10:26 CET | News
The auction of the 700 MHz and 2600 MHz frequencies will be postponed until the end of the year, according the director of Paraguay's National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), Teresita Palacios, reports ABC. Originally the auction of the spectra for the implementation of 4G mobile internet services was planned for mid-2016. Palacios said that the extra time is needed for operators Claro and Tigo to recover investing in buying 1700-2100 MHz frequency spectrum.
