Entel Chile brings mobile broadband to Alto Hospicio

Monday 21 January 2019 | 11:44 CET | News
Chile's telecommunications services regulator Subtel has announced that local operator Entel launched mobile services in the northern locality of Alto Hospicio in the Tarapaca region. The country's minister of transport and telecommunications Gloria Hutt said the launch was the first step for the total digitalisation of the Tarapaca region, which currently has a fixed broadband penetration rate of just over 52 percent. Last year the government said around 1,200 base stations would be launched in remote parts of Chile in a total investment of around USD 250 million.
