Company Overview

Entel is the largest telecommunications company in Bolivia with a history spanning over 50 years. Traditionally a government owned entity, the company was privatised in 2000 only to be re-nationalised in 2008 after stagnant performance. 

The company operates 2G services and a 3G HSPA+ network over B5 (850 MHz). Having trialled LTE since mid-2011, Entel finally launched LTE in April 2014 over the B13 (700 MHz) band after securing 2 x 12 MHz spectrum in the 2013 government auction.
