MTC scraps tender for RDNFO project

1 Jul 2022

Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones, MTC) has cancelled the tender to select a company to operate and maintain the 13,600km National Fibre Optic Backbone (Red Dorsal Nacional de Fibra Optica or RDNFO) system. The ministry has instead decided that the network will be managed directly through the National Telecommunications Programme (Programa Nacional de Telecomunicaciones, Pronatel) within the framework of Ministerial Resolution No. 689-2021-MTC/01. The order provided for Pronatel to assume, on a provisional basis, operation of the RDNFO project for a period of no more than three years.
