"With the bill we have a stronger connectivity plan that allows us to prioritize many more regions that we would not be able to reach. Today, we are structuring the auction of the two most important bands that have the Colombian spectrum that are those of 700 and 1900. These two highways will be auctioned this year and thanks to the project, the impact will be much greater, "said the minister.

In fact, Constain explained that the 700 band is the one that best allows reaching the rural areas of deep Colombia, where connectivity will change the way of life and the economy of the families that live in those places.
