Chile’s telecoms regulator Sub-Secretaria de Telecomunicaciones (Subtel) has received bids from the nation’s three main cellcos for the trio of 700MHz licences on offer, the watchdog announced at a press conference yesterday. Claro and Movistar, the local units of regional heavyweights America Movil (AM) and Telefonica respectively, and Chilean telco Entel submitted offers for the 4G spectrum. The concessions come with the obligation to roll out coverage to 1,281 rural towns, 503 educational institutions and 13 roads totalling more than 850km in length. Subtel added that the licences will require open access to mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) and automatic roaming.
