Chile’s broadband penetration is relatively high for the region. The country experienced a slump in economic growth from 2014 to 2017 though it maintained one of the highest GDP per capita rates in the region. The population is also receptive to new technologies, so encouraging operators to develop services based on LTE and fibre-based broadband infrastructure. Broadband services in Chile are among the fastest and least expensive in Latin America: in terms of both broadband penetration and broadband speed, Chile ranks second in South and Central America after Uruguay.
A number of operators compete in the broadband sector. VTR, part of Liberty Global’s LILA unit, overtook Movistar as the market leader during 2018. The two other prominent players include Claro and GTD, while Entel is a distant challenger

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.
Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.
The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.
Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
