Chilean ISPs ordered to deliver promised speeds

Friday 20 October 2017 | 10:49 CET | News
Chile's Chamber of Deputies has finally approved a bill designed to ensure that the country's ISPs deliver the speeds promised to users in their service contracts. "All users will know exactly what they are signing up for and the efficiency of the service they are paying for. There is no more room for smallprint or the possibility of promising 100Mbps speeds when they are just 30Mbps," said transport and telecommunications minister Paola Tapia.
