An article in dialogociudadano.com reports that: "Claro faced problems when placing the antennaes, after installing four base radio stations and their telephone central." And that, "Some of the communities in which antennas where to be installed protested until it impeded construction based on arguments that went from aesthetic and environmental concerns to health risks."
Ireland-based Digicel and Claro, a unit of Mexico's América Móvil, signed contracts for the provision of wireless service in Panama, where their concessions oblige them to install four radio bases.
Pyramid Research predicts that Digicel will reach 21.3% of the mobile market and Claro 11.7% in 2015.
Since beginning operations in March, the company has achieved 85% coverage nationwide.
The company, through its Claro brand, announced investment in infrastructure, retail outlets and health care centers.
