WOM reaches four million subscribers milestone

17 Jul 2018

WOM, Chile’s fourth largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, has celebrated a milestone this month after it announced that it has now reached four million customers nationwide. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, WOM reached two million subscribers in December 2016, shortly after passing one million users in Q2 2016. UK-based investment fund Novator acquired Nextel Chile in January 2015 and rebranded the company as WOM in June that year, quickly tapping into a youth audience with its ‘edgy’ advertising strategy.
