Telecommunications

U.S.-based IDT Domestic Telecom, Inc. and the state-run telecommunications company Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba, S.A. (Cuban Telecommunications Enterprise, S.A.—ETECSA) have re-established a direct telephone link between the two countries.

Viettel, a Vietnamese telecommunications company, has recently made headway in the Latin American and Caribbean region.

Yesterday President Sebastián Piñera signed a bill to create the Superintendencia de Telecomunicaciones, an agency expected to supervise Chile’s $30 million-telecommunications industry.

Cuban state-owned telecom company ETECSA has again cut the activation fee for cell phones.

China will construct a $300 million communications satellite in Bolivia, President Evo Morales announced Thursday.
