Three Chilean mobile networks, Movistar, Entel and Claro have been granted 4G licenses after making payments totaling USD12 million.
The three networks were each awarded 20Mhz of spectrum, with the three blocks awarded based on price tendered. Claro received Block A, then Entel followed by Movistar.
Under the terms of the licenses, the companies have a year to launch LTE based services, and two years to expand coverage to 543 rural communities which currently lack broadband internet access.
