BNamericas is reporting that Bolivian cellco Entel Movil is planning to expand its rural coverage to 23 municipalities in the Chuquisaca region. Costs for the expansion are estimated at BOB24 million (USD3.4 million), with the operator expecting to reach approximately 43,000 new potential customers. Further rural rollouts are expected as part of the operator’s involvement in the Telefonia Movil Rural programme, a project assisted by the Ministry of Public Works intended to bring mobile and internet services to rural regions.
