US firm ChinaTel Group has completed all corporate, legal and other actions necessary to change its name to VelaTel Global Communications, the firm said in a statement.
"While a number of our projects are based in China, we are approaching the launch date of our wireless broadband network in Peru, and we are exploring and in some cases actively negotiating transactions for projects in many other countries in Eastern Europe, South America and Asia," company CEO George Alvarez said.
"Based on our global approach to delivering wireless broadband access to subscribers in emerging markets worldwide, we've now outgrown the name ChinaTel," added VelaTel president Colin Tay.
VelaTel owns a 95% stake in Peruvian telecoms operator PeruSat.
