Promtel confirms Mexico's Red Compartida coverage milestone

Thursday 23 January 2020 | 11:30 CET | News
Mexican investment promotion agency Promtel has confirmed that the country's 4G shared network (Red Compartida) reached the target of covering over half of the country's population by January 2020. Earlier this month the Altan Redes consortium that's rolling out the infrastructure said the network can now be accessed by 56.3 million residents, equivalent to 50.18 percent of the population. In a statement, Promtel said it verified the figure after conducting over 300 inspections at Red Compartida's 4,436 base stations.
