Personal delays investments due to the lack of LTE spectrum

Monday 25 August 2014 | 15:37 CET | News
Paraguayan mobile telephony Personal has been delaying investment projects in the country as telecoms regulator Conatel did not award spectrum for the provision of 4G LTE services in the country, ABC reports, citing Personal CEO Francisco Gutierrez. The executive said that Personal and Claro should be the only authorised operators to participate in future auction of the 1,700MHz band as Tigo and Vox already have spectrum which could be used for the provision of mobile broadband. Personal reached a total of 2.38 million mobile telephony subscribers by the end of June, almost flat year-on-year.
