Osiptel backs reduction in interconnection fees

7 Feb 2022

Peruvian industry watchdog the Supervisory Agency for Private Investment in Telecommunications (Organismo Supervisor de Inversion Privada en Telecommuniciones, Osiptel) has backed proposals to update the price ceiling for interconnection between mobile providers. Updating the fee using the current methodology would result in a reduction in the per minute rate from USD0.00162 to USD0.00129, Osiptel noted in a statement. The regulator added that it also received proposals from operators Entel and Movistar, with the former suggesting lowering the fee further still, to USD0.00075 per minute, whilst Movistar requested that the price be maintained at USD0.00162 for the next four years.
