Tuesday 12 March 2019 | 11:17 CET | News
Peru's communications ministry (MTC) announced plans to auction a total of 90MHz in 4G and 5G-ready frequencies in the AWS-3 (1,750-1,780MHz and 2,150-2,180MHz) and 2.3GHz (2,300-2,330MHz) bands. The country's private investment promotion agency ProInversion has been entrusted with managing the tender for a total of 60MHz in the AWS-3 band and 30MHz in 2.3GHz, said MTC, which recently approved new spectrum caps to prevent hoarding among mobile operators.
