Personal Paraguay launches 4G services

Friday 18 December 2015 | 11:03 CET | News
Paraguayan operator Personal (Telecom Italia) has announced the launch of 4G-LTE services in the capital Asuncion, to be extended to the country's main cities in the first quarter of 2016. The operator will use the 1900 MHz band for the service. Personal is the first Paraguyan operator to offer 4G services and the launch comes just a day after the country's regulator Conatel announced the allocation of six blocks of mobile frequencies in the 1,700-2100 MHz (AWS) band to Claro (America Movil) and Tigo (Millicom) for a total of USD 90 million.
