Peru clears 3.5GHz band ahead of 5G spectrum auction

Tuesday 20 October 2020 | 12:04 CET | News
Peru's Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) said it has cleared the 3.5GHz band to mobile broadband services ahead of a planned auction of 5G-ready spectrum frequencies next year. The amendment of the national frequency allocation plan enables operators with concessions in the 3.5GHz band (including Entel, Telefonica and America Movil) to launch 5G services before the planned tender but more bands are required, with the ministry assessing observations received from interested parties in a recent public consultation.
