Country Profile
RegulatorEnte Nacional de Communicaciones


On August 15, 2018, Argentina approved Resolution 4958/2018 defining Community Networks. This Resolution allows them to apply for licenses within the framework established in its Regulation on Licenses for Information and Communications Technology Services. One problem with this License is that it can be applied to only populations up to 5000.

In this case, it is not a new license but a new registration corresponding to Owners of Community Networks. For now, there are no bands identified or planned. However, it is possible that in the future these operators may acquire the usual frequency bands for shared use that are used for Internet Access by providers (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz).

The Argentine Universal Service Agency establishes incentives for rural areas and underserved areas through Calls for Non-Reimbursable Contributions of up to 80% of the costs of projects presented by ICT service licensees operating in areas of influence of disadvantaged areas, with an emphasis on Cooperatives and Small Enterprises.
