In a decision announced by Argentinian president Mauricio Macri, the National Communications Agency (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones, ENACOM) has committed to freeing up 450MHz spectrum to improve rural connectivity. In conjunction with the Secretary of Agribusiness, ENACOM personnel have supervised the creation of the Rural Connectivity Board (Mesa de Conectividad Rural), which will facilitate access to the spectrum. According to ENACOM, the 450MHz frequencies will be available to small/medium-sized local providers who wish to provide broadband and fixed line telephony.
