Venezuela’s telecommunications watchdog Conatel has announced a number of targets for the 2023-25 period in a newly-published plan, including the start of a 700MHz migration plan later this year, paving the way for a tender of 5G-compatible spectrum in 2024. It also forecast that 2G would be completely phased out by 2025, by which time 90 percent of the population will have access to 4G-LTE thanks to the activation of 2,100 new antennas.

In addition, shortly after announcing that 293 of the country’s 335 municipal capitals are now connected to fibre, Conatel said it expected to FTTH subscriptions to reach 1.8 million by the end of 2025, with fibre networks set to almost double in size to 65,000 kilometres over the three-year period.
