Telefonica to bid for Colombia 4G spectrum

Monday 2 December 2019 | 12:01 CET | News
Movistar Colombia (Telefonica) has confirmed that it will be taking part in the relaunched auction for LTE spectrum in the 700MHz, 1.9GHz and 2.5GHz bands later this month. The operator previously joined Tigo and Avantel in refusing to join the bidding process on grounds of lack of transparency, above all the failure to set a reserve price for the LTE spectrum to be made available. Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) has since revised the rules to include a reserve price, as requested by the operators.
