Telecommunications Ministry and the University of Chile signed an agreement to create the 5G Campus, a project that will enable experimental networks to investigate this technology.
The 5G network will allow "traffic lights, public lights, cameras, and sensors to be coordinated through this network. Chilean cities will be a safer place," Piñera added.
The renovation of the Chilean infrastructure will occur amid the "Tech War" that the U.S. President Donald Trump has unleashed against China's Huawei, which is the world's leading company in the 5G network development.
Besides banning Huawei's presence in the United States, the Republican administration is pressuring other countries not to purchase Chinese technological goods or services.
