Telefonica Peru has signed a four-year network maintenance contract with Spanish network services company Ezentis, covering capital city Lima and the provinces of Cuzco, Puno, Moquegua, Arequipa, Tacna, Madre de Dios and Apurimac. The contract, which is said to be worth EUR100 million (USD104 million), will principally cover the maintenance of 1,100 new cell towers.
TeleGeography notes that the Peruvian contract was inked just days after Telefonica handed Ezentis a EUR120 million three-year maintenance deal in Chile. That deal covered La Region Metropolitana Oriente (Santiago), and the cities of Puerto Montt, Rancagua, Talca, Linares, San Fernando, Temuco, Osorno, Valdivia and Curico.
In total, Ezentis claims to maintain 38,000 cell towers across Latin America.
