Company Overview

Avantel is a mobile carrier and telecommunications service provider operating in Colombia. Initially a digital trunking services provider, Avantel requested to become a mobile services provider as early as 2005 but due to legislative and competition hurdles was only able to enter the market in 2014.

The company provides 3G UMTS services over the B4 (1700 MHz) AWS band, and launched 4G LTE services also over B4 (1700 MHz) in August 2014 after securing 30 MHz paired spectrum in June 2013.
