Argentine broadband provider Ertach has extended its WiMAX networks in the provinces of Buenos Aires and Tucumán, according to BNamericas. The company claims to have invested nearly USD200,000 to migrate two nodes in the cities of Bahía Blanca and San Miguel de Tucumán to WiMAX. The wireless broadband technology will allow connections of 4Mbps in a radius of 20km from the centre of each city. BNamericas recently reported that Ertach’s goals this year include expanding its national backbone with an investment of USD10mn, implementing a communications network for Buenos Aires province and increasing WiMAX penetration.
