Of the total investment figure, USD200 million is expected to have been spent by the end of this year, with USD250 million earmarked for 2007. Two-thirds will go to the company’s wireless arm Movistar Perú while the remaining USD200 million will be set aside for broadband internet services, run by the company’s local fixed line unit Telefónica del Perú (TdP).
