The AWS band is suitable to deploy 4G networks and provide LTE services, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The spectrum tendered is part of the blocks that were not awarded in an auction held in 2014, Indotel said in a press release. The 30MHz comprises the last segment of spectrum designated for public mobile telecom services in the short term, according to the Dominican Republic's national frequency allocation plan.

Bidding documents and tender guidelines will be available on Idotel's portal on November 15.
