Panama’s National Public Services Authority (Autoridad Nacional de los Servicios Publicos, ASEP) has confirmed that Digicel Panama has been awarded 2×10MHz blocks of 700MHz spectrum in the 738MHz-748MHz/793MHz-803MHz bands. The decision was approved by Cabinet Resolution No. 142 (dated 13 November 2017) and green-lit by the regulator late last month. The spectrum price has been set at USD22.571 million, while the frequencies must be put into use within twelve months (i.e. by January 2019).
