Santiago. February 15, 2022 . WOM continues a custom that comes from its beginnings in Chile: celebrating every time another million customers are added. For the company, it is an event that reflects how the market continues to move thanks to competition and at the same time greater benefits are generated for people in products and services that are now essential in daily life.
And this achievement of 7 million customers finds WOM at a very special moment. Today the operator has the fastest growing network in all of Chile and is also moving forward in opening new 5G zones with coverage for customers who have equipment compatible with this technology.
“We are focused on strengthening and expanding our 4G network, and accelerating 5G deployment to connect more people, especially in remote and rural areas, and thus provide greater access and ensure better connectivity quality at a fair price. We have achieved this growth thanks to the trust of our clients, and we will continue working to deliver the best experience,” said Sebastián Precht, CMO of WOM.
Meanwhile, Christian Laque, CTO of WOM, said that "having the network with the fastest growth in the industry means a tremendous development in the different regions of the country, with their different geographical and social particularities, which requires an enormous effort by our team in the territory and also of our external partners.”
