Entel Chile launches LTE-A service in all regions

Wednesday 8 March 2017 | 11:18 CET | News
Chilean operator Entel has announced the launch of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) services throughout the country, having completed the national deployment of its 700MHz network ahead of schedule. The new so-called 4G+ service offers significantly higher data transfer rates by aggregating bandwidth on the 700 MHz and 2,600 MHz frequencies. Entel was the first Chilean company to launch LTE-A services in May last year, followed by Movistar and Claro. The company said it has invested around USD 100 million to install some 660 LTE base stations all over the country, from Arica to Punta Arenas.
