Spanish-backed full service provider Movistar Peru has been allocated the Block A spectrum in the 1700MHz/2100MHz range that it won via auction in July this year. TeleSemana writes that the cellco has pledged to roll out Long Term Evolution (LTE) services to 234 district capitals and main towns. Under the terms of its concession, Movistar must launch services within one year, and its network must cover 114 district capitals within the first two years.
