Cooperatives guaranteed spectrum

1 Aug 2007

Ceferino Namuncura, head of local telecommunications regulator CNC, has told BNamericas that telephony cooperative associations Fecotel and Fecosur are guaranteed to receive sufficient mobile spectrum. The statement alleviates concerns over how much spectrum is available and whether other telcos will compete for it. Telecommunications ministry SeCom granted Fecotel and Fecosur the right to provide mobile services on 24 July.
