Entel outlines NGN investment plans

20 Oct 2006

Entel executives have told BNamericas that the company plans to invest USD150 million over the next three years to expand the number of value added services available through its next generation network (NGN). The NGN took nearly one year to install with an initial investment of USD30 million and Entel plans to use this platform to provide communications, data and internet services to the SME segment. ‘The upcoming investments will be for network expansion and mostly to implement new services over the network as a way to provide SMEs with the communications solutions only large corporations have today,’ Entel corporate products assistant manager Alfonso Emperanza told BNamericas during the press conference to launch the network. During the trial period Entel managed to sign 6,000 clients nationwide and the goal is to increase this number to 25,000 clients by the end of 2008, Emperanza said.
