Osiptel asks Congress for opinions granted by regulator to MTC to be binding

In his presentation to the Congress Transportation and Communications Committee, Rafael Muente, president of Osiptel, explained that in the last ten years they have submitted a variety of reports with recommendations on the use of the radioelectric spectrum that have not been taken into consideration, because they are binding or of compulsory application. Muente presented a summary of the latest opportunities in which he gave his opinion against spectrum transfers between operators, among which he cited Claro's case. He also said that the spectrum license of the 2.5 GHz band to Bitel, without public tender, was granted without Osiptel's knowledge.

As summarized by Marcelo Guglielmucci, Marketing and Commercial Planning Manager of Claro Empresas, in dialogue with Convergencia, “there is a continuous reformulation of the business model: whether it is connectivity plus infrastructure, plus a business fee, plus advice, the first variant or the first two, or the other alternatives, or giving everything”.
