Entel to invest USD 371 mln in Chile and Peru operations this year

Wednesday 29 April 2020 | 15:00 CET | News
Chilean operator Entel has announced plans to invest USD 371 million in both Chile and Peru this year, around 10 percent less than in 2019 due to the ongoing economic downturn in the region, reports Diario Financiero, citing company general manager Antonio Buchi. Around USD 264 million of the total will be allocated to the domestic unit, with USD 105 million invested in the continuing expansion of the Peruvian subsidiary. Around USD 100 million will be spent on 4G network upgrades in Chile and "gradual" 5G network rollout, said the executive following the company's AGM.
