Entel Bolivia to complete Pacific fibre connection by May 2019

Monday 6 August 2018 | 11:32 CET | News
Bolivian state-owned operator Entel will complete its plan to connect the landlocked country to a Pacific underwater fibre cable in southern Peru by May 2019, reports La Razon, citing the company's CEO Oscar Coca. The project is 40 percent completed and will lead to improved services and a 40 percent reduction in rates, said Coca. In April Entel said it had acquired 1,400 kilometres of Pacific fibre-optic cable after earlier announcing a USD 60 million to set up as a private operator within Peruvian territory.
