Three firms buy bidding rules for wireless licence

30 Apr 2009

At least three companies have acquired the bidding rules to participate in the Peruvian government’s tender of 25MHz of spectrum in the 1900MHz band, writes BNamericas citing ProInversion’s telecoms specialist consultant Aldo Schenone. While Schenone declined to name the interested companies, local press have reported that two of the companies are Chilean operator Entel PCS and Middle Eastern-based HITS Telecom. Analysts believe that Brazilian cellco Oi may also be interested. ProInversion yesterday confirmed that it expects to award the spectrum on 30 June; firms have until the end of today to present prequalification documents and technical and economic bids.
