Colombia senator proposes state management of mobile network

A Colombian senator is proposing that a state-run telecoms company be set up to manage the country’s network of cellphone towers and lease capacity to operators, a model he said would improve coverage and boost competition.His proposal comes months before the expiration of 20-year contracts held by Claro and Telefonica to manage parts of the network, but after telecoms group Millicom, operating in Colombia under the brand Tigo, renewed its operating rights in the country for 10 years.
