Costa Rica OKs spectrum auction

17 MAR 2010

Costa Rica’s comptroller and attorney general have given telecoms regulator Sutel the green light to go ahead with an auction for mobile spectrum after completing a probe into a suspected conflict of interests regarding one of the potential bidders, notes TeleGeography. Sutel postponed the publication of bidding rules on 5 February for the auction of spectrum blocks in the 850MHz, 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands for ‘logistical’ reasons. Each of the three blocks will amount to 60MHz. Telefonica, Cable & Wireless, Millicom, Digicel and America Movil have all expressed interest in participating in the tender.
