CVG Telecom rolls out cable link to Colombia

17 Oct 2006

Venezuelan telco CVG Telecom says it will switch on a fibre-optic cable link between Venezuela and Colombia in mid-November, with commercial operations set to be launched in December. CVG told local press that calls to Colombia, as well as Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia, are currently routed via undersea cables to the US, and that its new cable will make calls to the Andean countries significantly cheaper.
