Peru awards fourth MVNO licence to Cuymobile

Wednesday 13 September 2017 | 11:33 CET | News
Peru's communications ministry (MTC) has approved the award of an MVNO licence to local company Cuymobile, reports RPP Noticias. The news comes less than a week after Virgin Mobile announced that it was leaving the Peruvian market just 13 months after launching what was the country's first MVNO. Virgin sold its assets and licence to Inkacel, a subsidiary of Spain's InfoPyme, with two other MVNOs – Dolphin Telecom and Famagusta – also awarded licences but yet to begin operations.
