Brazil and Chile bring roaming agreement into force

Brazil and Chile bring roaming agreement into force

As of today (25th July), Chile and Brazil have dropped roaming charges between the two countries following a six-month delay.

The agreement applies to all mobile phone users and IoT devices. CommsUpdate reports that it was originally scheduled to come into effect on 25th January 2023, with the delay requested by Chile’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores, MRE).

The agreement is a corollary from a Free Trade agreement signed between the two countries in November 2018, which led to the signing of a Decree in Brazil’s Official Diary of the Union on 26th January 2022 stipulating that roaming charges would be abolished between the two countries within a year.
