Viva offers USD30m for unsold AWS frequencies

4 May 2018

Trilogy Dominicana (trading as Viva) has reportedly submitted an offer to the Dominican Telecommunications Institute (Instituto Dominicano de las Telecomunicaciones, Indotel) for unsold AWS spectrum in the 1710MHz-1720MHz/2110MHz-2120MHz and 1730MHz-1735MHz/2130MHz-2135MHz bands. The locally-owned cellco has offered to pay USD30 million for the frequencies, and has submitted 10% of the final offer as a guarantee.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, in May 2014 Claro Dominicana and Orange Dominicana (now Altice Dominicana) agreed to pay a total of DOP3 billion (USD60 million) for spectrum holdings in the AWS and 900MHz bands, although Viva opted not to participate in the process.
