Altán’s $1.8 billion financing for Red Compartida project

Clifford Chance, Galicia Abogados, White & Case, Hogan Lovells, González Calvillo and Linklaters have advised on the transaction

In 17 November 2016, Mexico’s Ministry of Communications and Transportation has announced today that the Altán Consortium has won the international tender process for Red Compartida, this Government’s most ambitious telecom project.

The Altán Consortium will be responsible for the design, installation, operation and upkeep of a wholesale mobile broadband network, that will facilitate the provision of current and future telecommunication services. The roll-out of Red Compartida will be carried out through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP), a project that is expected to generate investment in excess of $7 billion over the life of the concession.

Red Compartida will enable access to the most advanced 4G-LTE technologies to at least 92.2% of the country, ensuring these services in areas where traditional operators either presently do not reach, or where providing to these areas is not profitable. It should usher in an era of more competitive prices and improved service quality, transforming the telecom sector in Mexico and driving the country’s economic and social development.
