Bolivia’s Ministry of Public Works, Services and Housing (Ministerio de Obras Publicas, Servicios y Vivienda, MOPSV) has reportedly suspended a resolution designed to assign spectrum in the 3.5GHz band for 5G mobile use. BN Americas refers to the intervention as a ‘temporary cessation’ and explains that the tender was expected to issue three spectrum blocks for mobile use, with a further two blocks set aside for the creation of a telecoms operator with majority state participation. The price for each 50MHz block was established at BOB112 million (USD15.8 million).

As per Resolucion Ministerial No. 174, dated 9 September 2022, the Bolivian government modified the National Frequency Plan by designating the 3.3GHz-3.6GHz band for 5G mobile use. The spectrum was divided up as follows: 3300MHz-3350MHz (A1), 3350MHz-3400MHz (A2), 3400MHz-3450MHz (B1), 3450MHz-3500MHz (B2), 3500MHz-3550MHz (C1) and 3550MHz-3600MHz (C2).
