Argentina's state-owned operator Arsat said it has reached a new agreement to extend the country's Federal Fibre Optic Network (Refefo) in the southern province of Santa Cruz. Under the deal, the government has committed to investing some ARS 5.125 billion by 2023 to build 1,357 kilometres of fibre-optic network throughout Santa Cruz, above all in currently underserved areas, such as from El Chalten to Lago Argentino, from Rio Turbio to Nodo Esperanza and from the northern limit of the province along Route 3 to the city of Rio Gallegos.
