Tigo El Salvador in talks to renew mobile licences

Wednesday 15 March 2017 | 11:38 CET | News
El Salvador operator Tigo (Millicom) has begun negotiations with the government over the renewal of its mobile licences in the country, reports La Prensa Grafica, citing the company's CEO Marcelo Aleman. The licences for 45MHz of spectrum are due to expire next year and would be renewed for a further 20 years, said the report. Aleman said the aim was to renew the licences it currently owns before the government holds an auction to award a further 120MHz of spectrum for LTE use.
