MTC to begin regional fibre rollout

21 Aug 2014

The Peruvian government has begun preparation of pre-investment studies for the construction of a regional fibre-optic network, to complement the national fibre-optic backbone. TeleSemana writes that the new network is expected to connect around 6,500 remote locations, covering more than six million Peruvians. The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) is aiming to award licences for ten regional fibre projects under the scheme by July 2015.
