The Company will focus its resources on the development of the wholesale shared network “Red Compartida” in the 700 MHz spectrum
Mexico City, April 18th, 2018. After the evaluation of the conditions related to the bidding process regarding the 2.5 GHz spectrum offered by the Mexican government, the consortium established by ALTÁN Redes and its shareholders has decided not to participate in the aforementioned tender.
ALTÁN, as of today covering more than 32.2% of the Mexican population, is completely committed to the development of Red Compartida and to provide wireless and fixed broadband to all Mexicans.
ALTÁN will center its efforts to speed up its network deployment and will remain attentive to the opportunities that could arise to complement the spectrum related to the 5G implementation of Red Compartida.
