Chile looking to boost telecom investment by 30%

Thursday 7 June 2018 | 11:55 CET | News
Chilean telecommunications regulator Subtel is looking to increase investment in the digital sector by 30 percent this year alone, reports business daily Diario Financiero, citing telecommunications undersecretary and Subtel head Pamela Gidi. In a meeting with sector representatives, Gidi said the aim was to consolidate Chile's digital leadership in the region by boosting annual investment from USD 1.5 billion to around USD 2 billion, similar to the levels seen in recently re-elected president Sebastian Pinera's first government (2010-2014).
