Peru's economic expansion has made it a star performer in Latin America, but GDP per capita is still far lower than the regional average, inequality is high, and the indigenous populations live in abysmal conditions. Telecom penetration reflects the country's poverty map. Fixed-line and mobile subscribers are highly concentrated in urban areas particularly the capital city. Besides poverty, another factor to contend with is geographical inaccessibility, both in the Andean mountains and in the Amazon jungles.

The government favours foreign investment and follows pro-business, pro-growth policies. With GDP expected to grow 6% annually over the next several years, Peru's telecom sector is a promising arena for investors. The fastest growing telecom markets include mobile telephony, fixed and mobile broadband, and pay TV. Mobile broadband, in particular, has enormous growth potential in Peru, where it is able to fulfil a need that the fixed infrastructure has been unable to satisfy.
Peru's single concession regime allows for the provision of all telecom services, including fixed-line, mobile, pay TV, and internet. The single concession regime includes a national register of telecom services where each operator must notify the regulator for each new service it intends to offer. Unified concessions are no longer area-specific, but automatically cover the whole country.
This report provides an overview of Peru's telecommunications and regulatory environment, accompanied by statistical data, analyses, and outlook.

Key developments:

Following the successful implementation of Mobile Number Portability, the government ruled that Fixed Number Portability must be launched by July 2014; to increase competition, the telecom regulator Osiptel has cut certain interconnection fees by 68%, with rural operators being charged the lower rate; report includes the regulator's market updates to December 2013, market developments to May 2014.

Companies covered in this report include:

Telefónica del Perú (trading as Movistar), América Móvil Perú (trading as Claro), Nextel Perú.
