Tuesday 3 April 2012 | 11:32 CET | News
Chilean telecom regulator Subtel opened an investigation in mid-March into America Movil subsidiary Claro Chile over allegations that the operator inflated prepaid portability figures, reports Diario Financiero. The authority is checking to see whether the numbers in question were ever used to make calls. The operator controlled by America Movil could face substantial fines if found guilty. Claro is also under investigation for allegedly having delayed the portability process for around 3,000 customers in the first week.
