As part of the beginning of its FTTH implementation in Chilean communes, Claro will include its offer for residents in Maipu and Puente Alto. The company is expected to expand the service to 17 more communes this year and, by 2020, the operator plans to start implementing its FTTH offer to the rest of the country’s regions.
‘Our offer starts with a 20 Mbps download speed and 10 Mbps upload, for users with lower and more limited consumption needs and a promotional price from USD 20 for three months, up to 200 Mbps upload and 100 Mbps download speeds for more intensive users, taking into consideration that the most consumed content at homes are streaming video services such as Claro Video, and multiple devices connected simultaneously. For example, watching a movie on streaming needs a 5 Mbps average download speed per connected user’, the company reported.
At present, Claro Chile offers three internet and fiber optic plans. The first one includes a 20 Mbps download speed s and upload speed of 10 Mbps. Its original value is USD 26, although during the first three months it will cost USD 20. The download and upload speeds of the second plan are 50 Mbps and 25 Mbps respectively, and its monthly price is USD 30, although during the first three months the cost will be USD 26. The third plan includes download and upload speed of 200 Mbps and 100 Mbps. Its value is USD 36, 5, and, during the first six months, it is charged at USD 26. All packages include access to Claro Video.
Up to now, Claro Chile’s HFC service customers have not been informed if they will be updated to the fiber optic offer where it is available.
