Arsat connects Villa Lia to federal fibre network

Tuesday 19 October 2021 | 11:54 CET | News
Argentina's state-owned operator Arsat has teamed up with telecommunications regulator Enacom and local public services cooperative COOPVLIA to activate a fibre network in the rural locality of Villa Lia in the Buenos Aires region. Following an investment of ARS 20 million, a 20km link was rolled out between San Antonio de Areco and Villa Lia, allowing some 2,000 local inhabitants to access the country's Federal Fibre Optic Network (Refefo). Enacom also delivered 1,000 tablets to Villa Lia clubs as part of the "Clubes en Red" programme.
