Vodafone authorised to operate as MVNO in Chile

Thursday 8 September 2016 | 14:28 CET | News
Vodafone has been authorised to provide mobile phone services throughout Chile for a 30-year period, reports Telesemana, citing a publication in the country's official gazette. The company now has just under two years to find a network partner, with Claro (America Movil), Movistar (Telefonica) and Entel currently dominating the Chilean market with 95 percent of subscribers. Vodafone already operates as an MVNO in Brazil, providing business and M2M connectivity services, and previous reports have suggested the UK telecom giant is looking to further expand in Latin America.
