Colombia’s Ministry of Information Technologies and Communications (Ministerio de Tecnologias de la Informacion y las Comunicaciones, MinTIC) has published a draft resolution of its 5G auction terms. As per the document, the watchdog will distribute spectrum in the following bands: 700MHz (10MHz block), 1900MHz (10MHz), Extended AWS(30MHz), 2500MHz (30MHz) and 3500MHz (320MHz). Interested parties are invited to submit their comments by 15 August.

Going forward, MinTIC says it will also carry out ‘an objective selection process’ to regionally assign an additional 80MHz in the 3500MHz band at a local level from 2024, while the 26GHz band will also see similar assignments.

As per a previously announced timetable, the multi-band spectrum auction is earmarked to commence on 20 December 2023.
