A few days ago, Paperweight's response to Entel informed us about the proposal to set the access fee. Today, a new chapter is written in conflict.
Through a statement, the Subcommittee on Telecommunications (SUBTEL) announced the results of expert commission reports. These, Entel, Movistar, VTR and Claro asked for companiesWOM definitely refused.
The commission consists of three experts. One of them replaces the applicant company, the other with the sub-secretary, and the latter is chosen from one to the other. as There were four commissions, experts in this process were 12.
By experts (12), Eight of them were keen to protect the proposal from the subtil4G technology to use network costs to be used as a calculation model for the network. The technologies proposed by Entel, Claro and Movistar were 3G and 4G. Meanwhile, WOM and VTR squares have been made On the proposal of the Government, 4G + VoLTE.
Regarding the above, Pamela Gidi, Vice Secretary of Telecommunications, said:
It may require telecommunication user data in the coming years, so it is essential to create new high-speed mobile networks and benefit users, such as the 4G network.
The biggest opponents of government proposals are Movistar and EntelSubtel was made up of four experts that opposed the one proposed by Subtel.
The delivery of this report is not binding in the decisions, but supports the arguments provided by the executive branch. On January 25, 2019, the new Tariff Decree has been established Five years after.
It was the only one mentioned at this time Movistar, through his spokesman Fernando Saiz, Movistar Chile Director of Strategy, Regulations and Public Administration, they have declared the following:
"In Mobile Mobility, Movistar Chile, we close the request of the expert, published on December 26, the Release and Reports Report.
In this sense, it is worth pointing out that participation in a panel of experts, Pedro Pablo Errázuriz, former Minister of Transport and Telecommunication, is a testament to the agreement between the authority and the company as a model of the company, which they consider necessary. In the current reality of the telecommunications market, the use of 3G and 4G technology to offer vocal services.
Similarly, the model that reveals reports by Movistar Chile presents serious numerical constructions. For example, the proposal did not take into account that most of the 4G terminals currently available on the market do not accept voice technology such as LTE (VoLTE) technology.
In this regard, it is important to fully replace all the phones that do not support VoLTE technology, and 4G exclusively works on the network, which increases the company's costs. VoLTE only works less efficiently than a low-end 3G and 3G company.
Movistar demands this rate process, rigorously regulates technical and economic criteria, and we will take into account the arguments and figures provided in the process by correcting serious defects and errors detected in this phase of the process "
