DETAILS

Peru has a relatively poor internet penetration, with almost a 67% rate by the end of 2018. Fixed-line teledensity is only about 10 per 100 persons. Mobile-cellular teledensity reached 125 telephones per 100 persons in 2018 thanks to harsh competition.

TELECOMS MARKET

The incumbent still dominates the fixed telephony market. Peru’s mobile penetration is on a par with the regional average, though high penetration is attributed to the popular use (especially among urban dwellers) of multiple mobile subscriptions. Four mobile network operators compete in the mobile market. Broadband subscriber penetration in Peru is much lower than the Latin American average, partly due to poverty, limited levels of literacy among some demographics, low computer penetration, and rugged terrain. With the expansion of networks and the declining price of laptops and smartphones, the use of mobile broadband and phone-based internet browsing is escalating. The technical regulator of communications in Peru is the Presidency of the Minister Council, through OSIPTEL(acronym in Spanish for Supervisory Agency for Private Investment in Telecommunications).

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Peru’s economy reflects its varied topography – an arid lowland coastal region, the central high sierra of the Andes, and the dense forest of the Amazon. A wide range of important mineral resources are found in the mountainous and coastal areas, and Peru’s coastal waters provide excellent fishing grounds. Peru is the world’s second largest producer of silver and copper. Peru’s rapid expansion in the last few years has helped to reduce the national poverty rate by over 35 percentage points since 2004, but inequality persists and continued to pose a challenge. Poor infrastructure hinders the spread of growth to Peru’s non-coastal areas. Mining output increased significantly in 2016-17, which helped Peru attain one of the highest GDP growth rates in Latin America. However, economic performance was depressed by delays in infrastructure mega-projects and the start of a corruption scandal associated with a Brazilian firm. Massive flooding in early 2017 also was a drag on growth.
