Deal Watch: 13 signed up for Altán's Red Compartida

At least 13 companies have signed service deals with Altán Redes' Red Compartida, Mexico's wholesale wireless telecom network, five months into its launch, according to telecoms regulator IFT's records.

Altán has seen a steady flow of new clients since its March 21 launch, offering high speed connectivity capacity to telecoms operators and internet service providers.

Authorities have said they expect to see the first end users of the Altán Redes platform, a public-private partnership using the 700MHz band to offer 4G wireless services, this month.

The second largest telecoms operator in Mexico, Spain's Telefónica, announced in mid-August that it had signed Altán Redes' reference offer.

Other smaller, lesser known companies such as Islim Telco and Avanzada Addnetwork were among the first to sign up as clients to offer wireless home internet and pay TV services. Dish Mexico, the country's second largest satellite pay TV provider, is also among the clients.

More recently, two units of Mexico's media and telecoms giant Televisa, a leading fixed broadband and pay TV provider, also signed contracts with Altán Redes.

Novavisión, a joint venture between Televisa and AT&T, as well as Cablevisión Red and Operbes (Bestel), also part of Televisa's pay TV and triple play empire, signed up in late August, according to IFT's registry.

Altán Redes currently offers coverage to 36mn Mexicans in 11 cities including Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara.
