Argentina to vacate 600MHz band for mobile services within two years

31 May 2016

Argentina’s National Entity for Communications (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones, ENACOM) has issued Resolution 2531/16, which seeks to vacate spectrum in the 512MHz-698MHz (600MHz) band, as currently held by pay-TV operators, with a view to repurposing the frequencies for mobile use. As such, pay-TV providers will be migrated onto the 12.2GHz-12.7GHz band within the next two years. According to the watchdog the plan ‘will allow more efficient radio spectrum management, stimulating the development of services according to demand’.
