UFINET, the largest wholesale operator of fiber optic infrastructure in Latin America, has just signed a corporate agreement to incorporate NEDETEL’ s operation to its business in Ecuador, thus strengthening the wholesale offer in the country. NEDETEL, an operator with more than 15 years of experience in the sector, has an extensive first class fiber optic network with coverage in all the provinces of continental Ecuador and presence in more than 150 cities with state-of-the-art transport and access networks.

This agreement is a very important milestone for the Ecuadorian market, as it will allow us to cover the country’s future needs with a service offering of the highest quality and reliability. In addition, operators will have access to exceptional metropolitan coverage and network capillarity in many rural areas to provide their services to end customers in Ecuador.“says UFINET‘s CEO, Iñigo García del Cerro.

The resulting operation will offer services through a network of 12,000+ km of fiber optic network and multiple international outlets, both submarine and terrestrial, with the complement of 5 Data Centers in Quito, Santo Domingo, Manta, Cuenca, and Guayaquil, where a new Tier III Gold Data Center has just been put into operation, which will be highly attractive to complete the portfolio of services in the country.

We are very pleased with this alliance. NEDETEL’ s growth in recent years has been extraordinary, and the agreement reached with UFINET will further boost our positioning, enhancing the company’s offering in the country. Partnering with this large multinational will allow us to further strengthen our services, and to have a platform to connect Ecuador with the rest of the world.“added Juan Carlos Menéndez, president of NEDETEL.

NEDETEL and UFINET‘s complementarity, quality, service and commitment to their customers have been key factors in carrying out this operation, which we had been studying for months. This operation allows us to advance our positioning in the Andean region and significantly increase the supply of wholesale services in the country.“added Pablo Pérez-Bedmar Delgado, Business Development Director at UFINET.

The Chilean firm Paragon Private Advisors participated in the transaction advising NEDETEL.
