Telefonica, Tuenti, MVNO, Guatemala
Telefonica has announced the launch of its youth-focused Tuenti MVNO service in Guatemala, promising flexibility and transparency in its data-led prepay plans. The voice and data combination bundles available range from 1.5 GB of data and 75 minutes of calls per GTQ 50 (around USD 6.5), rising to 3GB and 100 minutes for GTQ 75 (around USD 10) and 5GB and 125 minutes for GTQ 100 (around USD 13.5). Also included in the plans is unlimited Whatsapp access, unlimited calls to other Tuenti subscribers and 25 minutes of VoIP calls via the Tuenti app.
Guatemala is the fifth Latin American market in which the Tuenti brand has been launched after Mexico in 2014, followed by Argentina, Peru and Ecuador. Telefonica subsequently discontinued Tuenti Mexico due to unexpectedly poor results.
