this will be the “Social Roaming” of 4.5G in Mexico


Telecommunications in Mexico are about to take a big turnaround. Altán, the operator responsible for the Red Compartida, has announced a alliance so that the three major national operators can connect to their network to offer “social roaming”.

Altan Redes has signed an agreement with the National Government so that Telcel, AT&T and Movistar can connect to the Red Compartida Y “join the initiative to close the digital divide in the country”. In this way, users of Telcel, AT&T and Movistar in Mexico will have coverage of Altán’s 4.5G network.

Altán’s willingness to use its infrastructure by the three major operators It will allow to bring telephone service to hard-to-reach areas with less than 5,000 inhabitants, as explained in its statement. Salvador Álvarez, General Director of Altán Redes, mentions:

It is a win – win for everyone, since operators can take advantage of Altán’s already installed infrastructure and bring connectivity to their customers in areas where they did not have coverage; Furthermore, the Red Compartida adds more users in areas with little traffic, which gives the network sustainability.

According to figures from the company itself, currently the Red Compartida provides 4.5G LTE coverage to 61.66% of the total population of Mexico, and aims to reach 92.2% of the population by 2024. So, with this “Social Roaming” agreement Altán aims to fulfill its promise to connect the majority of Mexicans and close the digital divide.

Along with this news from Altán, it is also important to mention that they have started to appear the first signs of Telcel’s 5G network, which it’s prepares Mexico for a notable advance in telecommunications. And we are just in February, we’ll see what else 2021 has in store for us.
