Innovations in Regulatory Policy and Spectrum Planning in
the Region
Spectrum is the ‘oxygen’ of the mobile industry and a vital resource in
enabling the deployment of mobile broadband
 Latin American countries are well behind the spectrum allocation
recommended by the ITU for 2020. The challenge for national regulators is
how to make more spectrum available to the market in a timely fashion.
 The surge in data traffic due to the increasing penetration of smartphones
demands innovative ways to manage and allocate spectrum
 Latin America saw a number of important spectrum auctions in the past few
years, however, in many cases licensees were faced with stringent
conditions attached to the spectrum, such as ambitious rural coverage
 The expansion of broadband penetration has become a goal for many
governments that have created national broadband plans to coordinate
public and private efforts in this space
