The historic reduction in the rate of entry charge – the charge made by one company due to the access to a network call – has left part of the industry satisfied. We mentioned WOM, Claro and VTR, which welcomed the 80% reduction ($ 1.8 per minute) with aplause.
This would not be true for Entel and Movistar entel, who did not expect such a low pay. For both companies, which offered an average 35% discount, it was not good news, which led to a discussion: when will the new rate have to apply to companies?

"We believe that this is the right way to continue to level the playing field in the industry," he added.
