14 May 2019

Argentina’s National Communications Agency (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones, ENACOM) has distributed 450MHz spectrum covering eleven locations in the provinces of Santiago del Estero, Tierra del Fuego, Rio Negro, Santa Fe and Santa Cruz, as it seeks to improve rural connectivity. The spectrum award was conducted under the auspices of the Plan de Conectividad Rural (Rural Connectivity Plan), and while the identities of the recipients have not been divulged, ENACOM previously stated that the frequencies in question would be made available to small/medium-sized local providers who wished to provide broadband and fixed line telephony in underserved areas.
