Peru's telecommunications regulator Osiptel has approved a 54 percent cut in the mobile termination rate (MTR) payable by all MNOs starting on 01 January 2019. In a statement, the watchdog said the rate will finally be cut to USD 0.00302 a minute (before taxes) from the current rate of USD 0.00661. Osiptel had initially proposed an even lower rate of USD 0.00287 with a view to boosting competition and lowering the cost of mobile tariffs to the benefit of end users.
