Conatel consults on spectrum

7 Sep 2006

Venezuela’s telecoms regulator Conatel this week launched a public consultancy on wireless spectrum allocation strategy. Conatel is opening up frequency blocks in the bands 1710MHz-1850MHz, 1850MHz-1990MHz and 2110MHz-2170MHz, currently used by the government for mobile, mobile by satellite, fixed signals and special research operations. The watchdog will accept contributions to the debate until 20 September via its website, and will then hold a public hearing to discuss the findings.
