Three months after officially launching its 5G network, Entel has reported that it has already achieved a 45% advance in deployment nationwide. 

With this, there are already nine regions of the country where the company’s clients can enjoy the benefits of this fifth-generation mobile technology.

After being awarded spectrum in two macro-bands in the last tender for the deployment of 5G in Chile and authorization from the authorities, Entel began executing the US$230 million investment network plan that it was committed to deploying nationwide, within a maximum period of two years, covering urban and rural areas.

To date, there are 67 communities that already have this technology, among which Alto Hospicio, Quilpué, Limache, Rancagua, San Fernando, Talca, Concepción, Temuco, and several more in Greater Santiago, stand out.

Manuel Araya, Manager of Regulation and Corporate Affairs of Entel, said: “5G is key for us and we want as many people as possible to have access to this technology, which is why the deployment will incorporate new areas as we continue to advance with the development of this network. 

“It is important to point out that its deployment will be gradual and its development will take several years, given the work and investment it requires.”
