Claro to deploy fibre networks in at least 15 cities

14 Feb 2019

Claro Peru is planning to focus on the development of its fixed broadband services this year with the launch of fibre-based networks in at least 15 provincial cities, a spokesperson for the operator was quoted as saying in an interview with Gestion. Deputy Director for the Residential Market at Claro, Roberto Bellido, explained that the fibre development would represent 60% of the company’s investment in networks in 2019. The official added that the provider, which currently serves the residential broadband market via HFC and fixed-wireless networks, is not abandoning cable technology, and will continue to expand and improve its HFC networks in Lima and other major cities. Claro plans to launch services in Talara, Tarapoto, Ilo and Huaraz this week and is currently finalising its rollout in Pisco and Juliaca.
