11 Jul 2019

Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones, MTC) has published a draft proposal on utilising spectrum in the 3400MHz-3800MHz range for mobile services, with a view to promoting the introduction and expansion of 5G technology. Stakeholders have 15 calendar days to submit comments on the proposals. The order also proposed an increase in spectrum caps, suggesting upper limits of 60MHz for combined sub-1GHz spectrum holdings, and 280MHz for middle band spectrum – covering the 1900MHz, 2100MHz, 2300MHz, 2500MHz and 3500MHz ranges.
