Peru lines up 700MHz auction

3 Dec 2014

Peru’s Agency for the Promotion of Private Investment (ProInversion) has launched a public consultation regarding plans to auction three blocks of spectrum in the 698MHz-806MHz band. The concession are expected to be used for Long Term Evolution (LTE) services, enabling providers to extend coverage more rapidly and at a lower cost than is possible with the 1700MHz/2100MHz and 1900MHz frequencies currently used for 4G networks. The three lots on offer are as follows: Block A, 703MHz-718MHz, 758MHz-773MHz; Block B, 718MHz-733MHz, 773MHz-788MHz; and Block C, 733MHz-748MHz, 788MHz-803MHz. ProInversion expects to complete the award process by March/April 2015.
