Tuesday 22 September 2020 | 11:49 CET | News
Movistar Peru (Telefonica) has confirmed plans to activate 4G services in more than 1,200 rural localities in the southern Ayacucho region by the end of 2020. The rollout is part of the "Internet para todos" (IPT) initiative with Facebook, BID Invest and CAF, with the partners looking to reach a total of 155,000 residents in the region. IPT has recently donated some 28,000 tablets to educational authorities in Ayacucho with a view to reducing the digital divide, added Movistar.
