Honduras makes 3.5GHz spectrum available for mobile

The regulator of Honduras has confirmed that it intends to release the 3.5GHz band for mobile use.

Conatel (Comision Nacional de Telecomunicaciones) has stated that it intends to “deliver the benefits of regional harmonisation with other Latin American countries” by allowing operators to use the frequency.

The decision to free up the band was prompted by the regulator’s desire to facilitate international roaming and spectrum optimisation while reducing the amount of investment required as well as time-to market.

Spectrum between 3.3GHz and 3.7GHz will be allocated for mobile services, while the 3.7GHz to 3.8GHz range will be designated for fixed/wireless broadband. The spectrum will be sold at auction, with a date to be specified in the future.
