The cooperative relationship between 4G Americas and AHCIET was formalized on April 27 in Santiago, Chile, and entails the sharing of technical information, regulatory viewpoints and spectrum recommendations. Both organizations have agreed to participate in wireless events and other regulatory fora in order to progress mobile broadband evolution and its support of social and economic development in Latin America. General Secretary of AHCIET, Francisco Gomez Alamillo, commented, “We look forward to a very robust cooperation with 4G Americas in regard to the key opportunities and regulatory policies for the wireless telecommunications sector in Latin America.” “4G Americas supports appropriate transparent and consistent wireless regulatory policies throughout Latin America for the deployment of mobile broadband services in the region,” stated Erasmo Rojas, Director of Latin America and the Caribbean for 4G Americas. “With this important cooperation agreement with AHCIET, we will strive to continue pro-active advocacy of wireless policies that will serve society throughout the region and meet the growing demands of wireless users in Latin America.” For more information about AHCIET, visit the website at www.ahciet.net.
