Regulator calls for voluntary 30% cut in fixed-to-mobile termination charges

27 Jan 2004

Osiptel, the Peruvian telecoms regulator, has asked the country’s cellular operators to make a voluntary 30% cut in their charges for terminating fixed line calls on their networks. The regulator’s chairman, Edwin San Roman, told a local newspaper that all four cellcos – BellSouth, Telefónica Móviles, TIM Peru and Nextel – had agreed to the proposals and suggested that the reduction be implemented in three stages over the coming 18 months. A number of fixed line operators currently block their customers from calling mobile networks because of the high costs involved; Osiptel hopes that the drop in charges will result in a surge of fixed-to-mobile calls.
