Monday 11 March 2019 | 11:18 CET | News
Chilean telecommunications regulator Subtel has proposed slashing the wholesale charges paid to access Telefonica's fixed line network by 77 percent to CLP 0.8 a minute from the previous rate of CLP 3.7.

Telefonica now has until 13 March to request that an expert commission be set up to examine Subtel's proposal.
