Colombian senator proposes state mobile management

Thursday, October 10, 2013

A Colombian senator is proposing that a state-run telecoms company be set up to manage the country's network of cellphone towers and lease capacity to operators.

The model would help improve coverage and boost competition, said Senator Juan Mario Laserna.

His proposal comes months before the expiration of 20-year contracts held by Claro and Telefonica to manage parts of the network.
