Public given four months to select DLD and ILD provider

5 Jul 2007

The Peruvian government has given the public until 31 October to select a long-distance operator to make domestic and international long-distance calls through direct dialing, according to BNamericas citing local news service Agencia Andina. Though telecoms legislation has long allowed customers to specify an operator of choice for direct dial, most long- distance operators offer their services through the use of a four-digit dialling code or calling cards. Once the period ends, anyone who has not set up a direct calling contract will only be able to make long distance calls by using one of the four-digit prefixes provided by the 15 or so licensed operators. Households that set up direct dialling contracts before the end of October will be allowed to change operator every two-months.
