12 Sep 2014

The Bolivian fixed and mobile operator Empresa Nacional de Telecomunicaciones (Entel) has contracted Chinese equipment vendor ZTE to deploy a large-scale FTTx fibre-optic network to improve its broadband internet services for both business and residential customers. Entel will deploy ZTE’s ZXA10 C300 next generation full-service access platform across most areas of Bolivia, the vendor said in a statement. State-owned Entel is Bolivia’s former monopoly domestic and international long-distance (DLD and ILD) service provider, and now offers a full range of fixed voice and data services. Its wireless subsidiary, Entel Movil, is the largest Bolivian mobile operator by subscribers, with 42.4% of all users at the end of June 2014, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
