Digicel and Claro Merger Would Release Frequencies
The government of El Salvador requires the renunciation of the spectrums assigned to both companies individually, to avoid limiting competition.
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
The resolution by the Superintendency of Competition requires America Movil (Claro)"... give up some of the radio spectrum it has been assigned. This spectrum will be used by new competitors creating more competition and therefore consumer benefits".
Claro has asked the Superintendency to revoke its prior decision and "to consent without conditions to its consolidation operations."
The Mexican company will not be able to merge with Digicel unless it agrees to a condition to renouncen the use of 20 MHz of airwaves.
After the competition regulator imposed the release of part of the spectrum leased by Claro as a condition to the merger between the two companies, America Movil has announced its withdrawal from the move.
Claro has submitted a new request to the Superintendency of Competition (SC) in El Salvador for authorization to buy Digicel.
