Peru watchdog lifts suspension on 'unlimited' data plans

Monday 27 November 2017 | 10:11 CET | News

Peruvian telecom regulator Osiptel has lifted its temporary suspension on the “all-you-can-eat” data plans launched last by the country’s mobile operators last month. In a statement, the regulator said it had decided to lift its ban after the operators involved – Entel, Movistar, Claro and Bitel – had completed the insufficient information initially provided to users regarding the specific conditions of the plans, above in relation to the exact amount of GB available, speed reductions, geographical restrictions and video quality.

Earlier this month Osiptel suspended the new “unlimited” data plans offered by the country’s operators on the grounds that the corresponding conditions weren’t insufficiently transparent and could raise false expectations among customers, prompting a spate of complaints.
