An appeal by Mexican operators MVS Comunicaciones and Iusacell to delay the auction of wireless spectrum has been rejected, according to BNamericas.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, last week the two telcos filed an appeal with a Mexican court alleging that the bidding conditions for the sale were unfair, following which the court announced it would consider the matter.

However, having examined the claims the court has now ruled that there is insufficient evidence to support delaying the auction.

In response, Gonzalo Martinez Pous, a commissioner at regulator Comision Federal de Telecomunicaciones (Cofetel), said: ‘This allows us to continue with the process through to its conclusion.’ Nonetheless, it is understood that the decision can be appealed, although neither MVS nor Iusacell have yet confirmed whether they will take such action.
