Chile's WOM up to 4 mln subscribers

Wednesday 11 July 2018 | 10:49 CET | News
Chilean mobile operator WOM has reached the milestone of 4 million subscribers just 3 years after the brand was launched by UK-based fund Novator, reports Telesemana, citing the company's CMO Sebastian Precht. The low-cost operator has led the country's mobile portability rankings for 30 of 36 months since rebranding from Nextel Chile back in July 2015 thanks above all to aggressive pricing policies and disruptive advertising. "Not only have we sought to improve the industry, but we have… reduced the digital divide and delivered good service at fair prices," said Precht.
