America Movil Wins 3G, 4G Spectrum in Argentina

Argentina has begun awarding the spectrum it auctioned last month, naming America Movil’s Claro as the first recipient of airwaves earmarked for 3G and 4G services.

Claro won spectrum in the 1800 MHz and 1900 MHz bands designated as 3G spectrum and two blocks of 1700-MHz and 2100-MHz 4G spectrum, Argentina’s Secretaria de Comunicaciones (SeCom) announced.

The regulator did not say how much Claro had agreed to pay for the frequencies.

SeCom announced on 31 October that it had concluded the auction of 10 lots of spectrum, raising US$2.23 billion in the process. Demand for the three available lots of 4G spectrum drove up the price.

Claro was one of four companies to take part in the auction. Rival mobile network operators Movistar, owned by Telefonica, and Telecom Argentina’s Personal also submitted bids, as did broadband provider Arlink. Original post at Total Telecom
