The second project, dubbed ‘Expansion de Servicios de Telefonia Movil e Internet’, covers the deployment of mobile telephony and internet connections in 321 communities in the north of Chile. The project is expected to connect around 12,000 households and 46,000 inhabitants. The government plans to invest around CLP 24.1 billion in this project.
