The Guyanese government has issued an Individual Licence and Frequency Authorisation to would-be mobile provider Green Gibraltar. The operator, which is 100% Guyanese owned and also uses the GG Cell name, is planning to offer 5G services in seven of Guyana’s ten regions. As noted by TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the company prematurely announced in November last year that it had been given permission to launch 5G services. The company retracted the claim citing a ‘misunderstanding’, after a statement from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) clarified that the process was incomplete but ongoing.
The operator’s new licence was published in the Gazette on 9 February but backdated to take effect from 1 January 2022. No further details were included in the publication, though the operator had previously applied for permission to utilise spectrum in the 3300MHz-3400MHz range in all but three regions. In a notice from the PMO, Green Gibraltar’s directors noted that they would now begin work on a rollout plan and would make a public statement soon.
