Dispute between government and media firm threatens to shelve Mexican broadband plan

Monday, March 5, 2012


Disagreement between media company MVS and the Mexican government over how to unlock a private broadband project is threatening to shelve the plan for several more years.

At the heart of the debate is 190 megahertz of bandwidth owned by MVS Comunicaciones that could be used to deploy a next-generation LTE
(Long Term Evolution) network in Mexico.

MVS bandwidth, which remained near dormant for years, is optimal for surging data-hungry devices such as tablets or smart phones, catching the eye of rivals eager to expand.
