Is Latin America ready for 5G?

TowerXchange outlines the plans of the key markets in Latin America in relation to the 5G space and the implications for telcos and towercos.


Several countries have initiated programs to reclaim back the underused spectrum, in order to auction it at a later date, where technically it would be possible to use the spectrum bands for 5G services.

In the majority Latin American countries, mobile network operators have for several years been working closely with wireless infrastructure companies and technology providers to conduct 5G pilot projects and test the viability of the technology for a particular market and region. This clearly shows that the longer-term plan for all the telcos in the region is to switch to 5G services, but with some countries in LATAM only recently closing down their 2G operations, we are likely to see very uneven adoption of 5G across the region.
