Peruvians port over 2.5 mln mobile lines in H1

Tuesday 13 July 2021 | 10:52 CET | News
A total of over 2.5 million Peruvian mobile users ported their phone number in the first half of 2021, up 78.1 percent on the year-earlier result of 1.4 million lines, according to the latest data released by telecom regulator Osiptel. Some 1.4 million postpay lines were ported in the January to June period, nearly double the 717,000 lines ported in the first 6 months of 2020, due above all to operator promotions including data-free access to certain apps, said the watchdog. The number of ported prepay lines also grew, by 47.3 percent year on year, to 698,000 in H1 2021.
