Convergencialatina talked with Chris Coles, Chief Commercial Officer, B2B and Networks/Wholesale of C&W Communications, about the behavior of the sector in Latin America. Planning for current laying for the next 15 years will be one of the topics of debate at Carriers Map Day 2022, the event organized by Convergencialatina for next September 14.
