TMG selected to assist Costa Rican regulator in designing the upcoming spectrum auction process in the 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz bands


TMG has been selected to support the Costa Rican Telecommunications Superintendence (SUTEL) in the upcoming spectrum auction for the assignment of 1800 MHz and 2100 MHz spectrum. The project involves conducting a valuation of the bands to be assigned, designing the optimal spectrum auction format and drafting the auction rules and the relevant concession contracts to be awarded. The Costa Rican government plans to auction off a total of 70 MHz of spectrum in these bands left over from the 2011 tender that opened the mobile market to competition. The project is slated to run through the end of May of 2016.
