Peru - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses

Synopsis

Broadband subscriber penetration in Peru is considerably lower than the Latin American average, despite government efforts to encourage the development of the sector. The shortcoming in broadband penetration is partly due to barriers such as poverty, limited levels of literacy among some demographics, low computer penetration, and rugged topography which has made the extension of fixed-line infrastructure in some areas difficult. Perhaps the biggest problem is the lack of market competition, which has made broadband services in Peru among the slowest and most expensive in the region.

Many of these difficulties are being addressed, and strong broadband growth is anticipated in coming years. Much of this progress will feed off the government’s national broadband plan, which aims to provide internet connectivity via a fibre-optic backbone to the more remote regions of Peru. A number of contracts have been signed since 2015 to improve connectivity in a number of regions. Parts of the project involving supplementary networks have suffered from implementation delays, while networks being built by private operators have also resulted in far less capacity demand than originally envisioned. This prompted the Ministry of Communications in mid-2018 to review the economic modelling of the project to encourage greater use of the network.

In addition, the expanding LTE networks are providing mobile broadband to an increasing number of rural communities, particularly following the auction of additional spectrum in recent years.

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
