Mundo launches as MVNO in Chile through Mundo Movil

As reported by several specialized websites, the international fund Linzor Capital Partners, which acquired the Chilean triple play operator Mundo Pacifico -recently rebranded as ‘Mundo’ in 2019-, has officially launched this last Sunday, November 15th, ‘Mundo Movil’, a new business line of the operator, which officially allows it to start its operations in the country as a MVNO, which will be based on the Movistar Chile network.

‘Mundo Móvil’ has been making trial versions for the last two months, until, finally, this Sunday it was officially launched. According to the specialized website Pisapapeles, during the trial versions stage, the service was tested with around 2 thousand people, and a total of USD 2.5 million were invested to start the operation. With its launch, Mundo Movil became the fourth Mundo’s business, whose offer already included broadband, pay TV and telephony services. The Chilean operator expects to attract 10 thousand clients with its new service.

According to its CEO, Enrique Coulembier, the aim of the company is to become an operator with low prices and accessible to users. In addition, Mundo intends to take a next step, and be able to combine offers for the fixed and mobile segment. The plans offered by Mundo Movil are already available through its official website.

In addition, Mundo plans to concentrate its efforts on the FTTH deployment in Chile. As reported by the specialized website BioBio in mid-October, Coulembier explained that the company currently features 24 thousand kilometers of FTTH, and expects to reach around 3 million households covered with this technology by next year.
