Subtel to lower roaming rates with Argentina, Peru

29 Jul 2014

Chilean telecoms watchdog Subtel is planning to begin negotiations with its counterpart in Peru to reduce roaming charges once it has finalised a similar deal with the Argentinian authorities, TeleSemana writes citing La Tercera. Subtel is confident that it will be able to sign-off on an agreement with Argentina before October 2015. The plans are part of a strategy put forward by the Organisation of American States (OAS), under which member governments agreed to take measures to implement policies to improve voice, data and SMS roaming services, particularly in border areas.
