Peru to activate 18 of 21 regional fibre projects by 2021

Friday 23 October 2020 | 12:17 CET | News
Peru's communications ministry (MTC) said 18 of the 21 telecommunications projects to bring fibre to more than 2 million Peruvians in rural and underserved areas will be operational by the end of next year. The rollout was resumed in June following a suspension due to the coronavirus outbreak but only three projects – in Huancavelica, Apurímac and Ayacucho – are currently in operation, with Lambayeque to follow soon.
