Peru creates new telecom fund Pronatel

Tuesday 19 March 2019 | 11:17 CET | News
Peru's transport and communications ministry (MTC) has announced the appointment of Raul Garcia Loli as executive director of its new national telecommunications fund Pronatel. The new fund replaces universal services fund Fitel, where Garcia Loli was project supervisor chief, having earlier held positions at Osiptel and Ositran. He has been tasked with reducing the digital divide in the country via numerous rural broadband projects including Peru's Fibre Optic Backbone Network (RDFO), whose viability is currently being probed by the MTC.
