The Bolivian government has announced that the state-owned telecoms operator Entel finished 2008 with over two million mobile telephony clients. In June 2008 Entel’s subscribers totalled 1.8 million compared to rivals Telecel and Nuevatel with 1.19 million and 1.15 million clients respectively. With new subscribers totalling around 50,000 a month in the second half of 2008, and a plan to increase coverage in rural regions from 2,600 to 3,600 base stations in 2009, Entel aims to consolidate its role as the largest cellco by subscribers. The operator forecasts wireless revenues will rise by 29% in 2009.
