Due to its strategic geographical location in the region, Argentina has the capacity for capturing a digital traffic increase at a local and regional level. This provides a clear opportunity to address the increasing demand, improve connectivity quality and speed, and make room for new technologies, such as 5G. In the next five years, the antenna network growth is expected to generate investment opportunities for USD 5 billion.
In addition, Argentina has everything it takes to become a regional hub for massive data centers and consolidate its technological leadership in the region. This is due to the government-driven data centers promotion plan, which includes specific legislation according to industry requirements.
