You're the RAN that I want: cellcos demand easier 5G rollout

14 Jun 2019

Chilean telcos have asked the government to review its laws on telecom towers to ease the rollout of 5G, La Tercera reports. Officials from all four of the nation’s cellcos argued that the authorisation process for new sites was not suitable for the 5G deployment, given the scale of rollout the new technology requires. Undersecretary of Telecommunications Pamela Gidi acknowledged that there were several problems that slowed down the installation of new towers, but did not state what action the regulator might take to eliminate these barriers.
