Bolivian state-owned operator Entel will finally complete its longstanding plan to connect the landlocked country to a Pacific underwater fibre cable in southern Peru by August, a few months later than originally planned, reports Cambio, citing the company's general manager Mauricio Altovez. Once activated, the link will allow the operator to "greatly reduce tariffs," said Altovez, adding that Entel will also be able to compete with all international providers "at the level of data transmission and information exchange."
