Thanks for the above comments re: VTR. Considering which carrier to use for cell phone and mobile data on my next trip to Chile (a few months duration).

Can anyone post their experiences with VTR for mobile phone use between Puerto Montt and Stgo? I ask because their prepago plans seem particularly suited to my usage (no, not the best way to choose). I plan to use cellular secondarily to WiFi/WhattsApp/Skype. Really, any impressions or recommendations, including any other carrier for this low usage traveler will be appreciated.

VTR is a cable company. Even then, they do not cover many areas in the south outside of major cities. Any wireless plans they might offer is probably a reseller situation, so you need to figure out what primary network they are on (e.g. entel, movistar, etc)

VTR Móvil

VTR Globalcom S.A. is a Chilean telecommunications company and the largest provider of cable TV and 2nd largest provider of fixed broadband Internet access and fixed telephone service. As a triple player, it has a small mobile fraction and offers services as MVNO on the Movistar network in 4G/LTE too.

Thanks for the very comprehensive link -- I'd not seen that website before.
