Telefonica wants more spectrum made available in Mexico

Wednesday 19 August 2015 | 09:01 CET | News
The executive president of Telefonica Mexico, Francisco Gil Diaz, has said that more spectrum needs to be made available to operators in view of the rapid growth of data consumption, reports El Financiero. He pointed out that all companies, not only AT&T, but also America Movil and Telefonica, are in need of additional spectrum. Gil Diaz added that the conditions of the auction should not result in "excessive punishment", i.e. that spectrum is not too expensive for operators, impacting their operations.
