To meet continued demand from multiple service providers

Lucas Palacios, The Economy Minister for the Government of Chile, said,
“We welcome the arrival of EdgeConneX in Chile. Our country needs investment that focuses on technology, innovation and the sophistication of human capital that will make us more competitive in the region, and the world. This is particularly true in the context of the economic recovery we face in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Chile is a country that offers companies, operators, service providers and technology firms a solid platform for the growing digital economy. This is the direction that we are looking toward for the country’s future development.”
