Sunday 23 June 2013 | 10:14 CET | News
Brazil's Telebras and the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) have teamed up with the telecommunications company of Uruguay to set up a joint infrastructure that integrates the telecommunications networks of Brazil and Uruguay. This is the first initiative for the effective implementation of an optical ring between the South American countries. The integration of the networks of the two countries allowed the installation of the first Binational Telecentre of Latin America, located in Santana do Livramento, a city that borders Rivera, in Uruguay. A Wi-Fi system was also set up to meet the needs of the people in the two countries. The network aims to provide a high-speed network, with voice, data and image services.
