Entel's PMP Helps the Chilean Telecom Company Handle Growing Complexity
Latin America has come online in full force over the last decade—and Chile has emerged as its digital frontrunner. Nearly 4 in 5 adults can access the internet, and 65 percent own a smartphone—more than any other country in the region. The government plans to increase connectivity even more: It aims to double internet penetration by 2020, including launching free Wi-Fi hot spots in every community and boosting home access to 80 percent. Entel, Chile's largest telecommunications company and a PMI Global Executive Council member, seeks to capitalize on the country's growing digital economy by upgrading its infrastructure and installing the fourth generation (4G) network customers crave, says Patricio Pérez, chief strategy officer, Entel, Santiago, Chile.
