REFEFO chalks up first fibre connection in San Antonio de Areco

25 Nov 2014

San Antonio de Areco, which is situated in Buenos Aires Province, became the first municipality in the country to connect to the state-backed Red Federal de Fibra Optica (REFEFO) last week, when state-run telecoms firm ArSat activated its node in the upmarket district of Benavidez. When complete, the 30,000km REFEFO project will reach more than 1,800 locations across the country, of which 1,460 are currently lacking basic telephone connectivity.
