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

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.
