Panamanian Supreme Court Suspends Antenna Installation
Global Insight Daily Analysis 30 april 2009

Eulalia Marin-Sorribes

The Supreme Court of Justice has suspended the installation of cellular antennas as a precautionary measure to avoid the potential negative effects that the electromagnetic radiation could have on the population's health. Although temporary, this measure has forced América Móvil 's cellular unit Claro to suspend its network development activities in Panama. The unprecedented measure also affects Telefónica, Cable & Wireless, and Digicel, which operate cellular services in the country. The Supreme Court has asked telecoms regulator ASEP to work on a new regulation with public participation.Significance: América Móvil has been experiencing several delays in the development of its infrastructures as a result of the opposition of certain municipalities concerned about the negative impact that the installation of more antennas could have on residents' health.

The operator, which launched operations in April, currently provides coverage of 80% of the territory but planed to extend its services to 100% (see Panama: 17 April 2009).
