5 Jun 2008

500,000 fixed wireless telephony lines are to be deployed within the next six months in underserved areas of Lima, reports BNamericas citing an announcement by President Alan Garcia on the presidential website. The news follows the award of a contract to Movistar in January for the provision of fixed wireless services in the 450MHz band. Under the terms of the 20-year concession, Movistar is expected to provide fixed wireless and mobile services in Lima and neighbouring Callao in the 452.5MHz-457.5MHz and 462.5MHz-467.5 MHz frequency bands.
