VelaTel Global Communications, a U.S.-based operator of wireless broadband and telecommunications networks, announced the launch of VelaTel’s GO MOVIL wireless broadband access network in eight cities in Peru.
GO MOVIL, previously ChinaTel Group, provides true 4G broadband Internet access to approximately five million inhabitants of the targeted cities. To attract customers, VelaTel is offering a variety of low-cost prepaid service plans and various devices for accessing the Internet in both fixed and mobile ways. These devices will be sold in company operated GO MOVIL stores.
VelaTel acquires spectrum assets through acquisition or joint venture relationships, and provides capital, engineering, architectural and construction services related to the build-out of wireless broadband telecommunications networks, which it then operates by offering services attractive to residential, enterprise and government subscribers.
The company is committed to bringing high speed Internet access to underserved markets around the globe. The company has project operations in People’s Republic of China and Peru. Additional target markets include countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe.
The company was recently rebranded to VelaTel. The name change was intended to better define the company's positioning as a key leader in deploying and operating wireless broadband and telecommunications networks beyond China, and now in Peru.
Earlier this year, VelaTel announced a contract with ZTE (News - Alert) to supply ChinaTel with infrastructure equipment for the nine-city wireless broadband network ChinaTel is deploying in the Fujian province.
