Argentina extends fibre network to Corrientes localities

Friday 30 July 2021 | 13:54 CET | News
Argentina's state-owned operator Arsat has announced the installation of fibre-optic shelters to connect underserved parts of the northeastern Corrientes province. The shelters have been installed in the towns of Paso de la Patria and Ita-Ibate, with another on the way in Ituzaingo. Arsat said the shelters have been connected to a 230-kilometre extension of the country's Federal Fibre Optic Network (Refefo) so that more residents in the areas can access their right to connectivity via local ISPs, cooperatives or SMEs.
