January 2018 - Paraguay CONATEL confirmed a minimum set of requirements for Type Approval of devices supporting 4G/LTE functionality.  Below is a summary:

CONATEL has confirmed that any device supporting 4G/LTE operation in the 700 MHz band must support LTE band 28.
If a product supports 4G/LTE operation in the 700 MHz band but does not support LTE band 28, CONATEL has confirmed that they will be unable to homologate the device, unless the 4G/LTE fuction is disabled for Paraguay.Currently, there are no Paraguayan cellular network providers that offer services in 700 MHz; a spectrum auction is underway for 700 MHz and it is unknown which providers will end up offering the service.  CONATEL also stated there is no official Regulation in place which outlines these requirements, and have not indicated when an official notification will be published.  Nevertheless, they have confirmed that the minimum 4G/LTE requirements are effective immediately and apply to both new Type Approval applications and renewals.

As regulations change from time to time in many countries you should contactCSIA for up to date information.
