The number of installed 4G base stations in Argentina increased from 5,365 in January 2016 to 9,645 in October, reports local daily La Nacion, citing figures from communications regulator Enacom. Although Argentina was one of the last countries in South America to launch LTE, the three operators offering 4G services (Movistar, Personal and Claro) have increased the number of base stations nearly tenfold from the 1,416 installed in May 2015.
