Chilean terrestrial fibre tender declared void

Friday 3 August 2018 | 11:00 CET | News
Chile's telecommunications regulator Subtel announced that the tender for the two remaining terrestrial sections of the USD 100 million 'Fibra Optica Austral' project has been declared void. In a statement, the watchdog said it received four bids to roll out fibre-optic infrastructure in the Los Lagos and Aysen regions but it decided against awarding the contracts because "the proposals failed to meet the legal, administrative, technical, economic and financial requirements" of the tender, which will now be relaunched.
