Although we are used to talking about Movistar in Spain, we must not forget that this operator provides service in a good number of other countries. The blue operator is a giant of telecommunications and, little by little, it is improving the service it provides in all these countries where it is present. In fact, for a few hours it has been possible to contract a new 2 Gbps fiberbut unfortunately it is still far from Spain.
This fiber is, as we will see later, twice as fast as the best one that we can hire here in Spain with Movistar. It is undoubtedly great news that these technologies are reaching other countries, since it is proof of the great commitment that Movistar puts to improve its services wherever it goes.
Movistar’s 2 Gbps arrive in Chile
This new 2 Gbps fiber, called Plan Turbo Symmetrical Fiber by the operator, offers 2,000 Mbps of symmetrical speed, which is equivalent to 2 Gbps both upload and download. The lucky country to receive this fiber is Chile, which at the moment is seeing how its Metropolitan Region already has the contracting of this fiber available, and that it will expand to more regions over time.
This is possible thanks to XGSPON technologywhich represents a considerable improvement and allows speeds of up to 10,000 Mbps to be reached. In addition, with this plan, Movistar users in Chile will take home a new WiFi 6 router, with which they will be able to take much better advantage of the 2 Gbps thanks to the greater speed and stability provided by this technology, in addition to a higher level of energy efficiency, which will be noticeable in the autonomy of all the devices that connect using WiFi 6.
Movistar has placed its 2 Gbps Turbo Home Internet Plan at a price of 50,900 Chilean pesos per month, which in euros would be approximately equivalent to 51,48 euros. In addition, the installation is completely free, both in this plan and in all the others that are available. At the time of writing these lines, this rate appears on the operator’s website as pre-sale, so it will still take a few days to be available for contracting.
In Spain we have 1 Gbps available
It is a pity that this new speed of 2 Gbps has reached Chile and not Spain. If we look at Movistar’s offer here in our country, we can see how it has three different fiber speeds if we contract only this modality. We have 100 Mbps fiber for 29.90 euros per month, 300 Mbps fiber for 38 euros per month and 600 Mb fiber for 44 euros per month, although right now it is on sale for twelve months at the price of 29.90 euros per month (offer ends today).
Nevertheless, the blue operator is also offering 1 Gbps, although on this occasion it only does so within its miMovistar convergent offer. To do this, we will have to get one of the two packages that include it, either the average package that also includes an unlimited mobile line for 69.90 euros per month (49.90 for the first 4 months), or the superior package of the three it has, which includes two unlimited lines for 84.90 euros per month (59.90 euros for the first four months).
