To broaden digital communication possibilities, and to benefit economical activities, tourism, and integration. These are the reasons why the memorandum to review eliminating roaming fees between both countries was signed.

Pamela Gidi, Chile’s Sub-secretary of Telecommunications, and Rafael Eduardo Muente, president of the Private Investment in Telecommunications Supervisor Organism head council (Osiptel), made clear their countries intentions to take down one of the last digital gaps towards the year 2020: roaming fees for telephone calls and mobile data. According to Gidi “both countries need to push and increase their digital economy”, so the agreement will favour the more than 300 thousand users who travel monthly back and forth Chile and Peru, and will also boost the economical and social development by simplifying information flow for technology and telecommunications.

These joint efforts, in addition to the reduction of roaming fees between Chile and Argentina (fees which will be eliminated by 2019), grant vital importance to the creation of a unique digital market through digital integration and telecommunications in the region.
