Telcel acquires 60 MHz of spectrum in 2.5 GHz band from MVS

Tuesday 29 November 2016 | 09:28 CET | News
Mexican mobile operator Telcel (America Movil) has announced a deal to acquire around 60 MHz of spectrum in the 2.5 GHz band from media company MVS Communicaciones for an undisclosed amount. In a short statement, Telcel said the spectrum covers different regions throughout Mexico and the deal remains subject to certain corporate and regulatory conditions, including the prior approval of communications regulator IFT. In September the IFT told 11 companies with 190 MHz of spectrum in the 2.5 GHz frequency band that they would lose their concessions if they didn't use them by 31 December 2016.
