Ursec sets date for auction

28 Apr 2004

Uruguay’s telecoms regulator Ursec has said that it will auction six 10 MHz blocks of mobile spectrum on 13 May 2004 – two in the 1800MHz band and four in the 1900MHz range – at a starting price of USD6 million for each block. America Móvil and Telefónica Móviles, both of which already have substantial Latin-American mobile operations, were the only companies to have purchased bidding rules by the 22 April deadline.
