Audio – The more the merrier, says Chile’s VTR GlobalCom

March 20, 2007

VTR GlobalCom is ready to deploy a WiMax network across Chile, a country of 16 million, joining local competitor Entel and Mexico’s Telmex in the race for more wireless clients in the region’s No. 5 economy.vtr.jpg

VTR’s new network is expected to reach 80 percent of the Chilean market, allow for the exchange of high-speed mobile data and telecommunications services and provide the company’s own cable operation with a wireless alternative for the so-called “last mile” broadband access.

VTR’s Chief Executive Mauricio Ramos spoke to the Reuters Latin American Investment Summit about the potential of WiMax in Chile and the rest of the region.
