Tigo Guatemala using 3.5GHz for 5G; 100 cell sites live in Guatemala City

18 Jul 2022

Tigo Guatemala’s new 5G network utilises the 3.5GHz band, senior official Jacobo Lara has informed BNamericas, adding that the cellco’s 5G infrastructure currently spans 100 cell sites across Guatemala City. The executive noted: ‘We are going to continue the implementation of 5G, expanding to the rest of the country in the coming months.’

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, earlier this month Tigo launched the country’s first 5G network, and gave customers the opportunity to trial the new technology via a trio of 5G ‘Experience Centres’ in the capital, which are located at Paseo Cayala, the Miraflores shopping centre and the Oakland Mall. A total of ten 5G-compatible Samsung handsets are available via the company’s retail stores.
