Chile's telecommunications operator Entel and Ericsson have completed live data session test on the Asia-Pacific Telecommunity 700MHz (APT700) spectrum in the country. Entel expects to deploy its nationwide 4G LTE network in APT700 spectrum in 2015 With this spectrum deployment subscribers will be able to get better in-building coverage as well as wide rural 4G LTE coverage. 

The trial was conducted by enabling 10 test sites with equipment using APT700 MHz frequency band on Entel's live 4G LTE network in Rancagua city, which is located 85 km south of Santiago de Chile.

In February 2014, the Chilean government completed its LTE spectrum auction and Entel was awarded one of three licenses on the APT700 frequency.
