CTC objects to WiLL licences

27 Jan 2006

Telefonica CTC Chile has presented objections to the government’s decision to award wireless in the local loop (WiLL) licences to Telmex Chile and VTR. CTC’s objections are reported to centre on the preferential treatment given to triple play provider VTR and the local unit of Mexico’s Telmex in the bidding for the 3400MHz-3600MHz licences. The pair were both given their preferred status after they lost out to Entel in a previous auction.
