Tuesday 2 February 2021 | 12:20 CET | News
Total data traffic transmitted over Chile's mobile networks soared to 926,418,669 GB in 2020, up 59.5 percent compared to the 580,741,771 GB consumed in 2019, according to a survey conducted by operator Entel. In the Santiago metropolitan region, data volumes rose by 41 percent year on year, said Entel, which attributed the rising levels to the adoption of lockdown measures to control the spread of Covid-19 as well as increasing digitization of households and businesses.
