Peru's transport and communications ministry (MTC) said the Council of Ministers approved an emergency decree designed to close the digital connectivity gap in the country by increasing internet access. The so-called 'Todos Conectados' plan includes a package of measures, such as bringing satellite-based internet services to 860 jungle locations with a view to connecting the entire Amazon area by the end of the year. A total of PEN 180 million will be invested in the rollout by the ministry and the country's national telecommunications fund Pronatel.
