Claro, Movistar open 4G networks to pre-paid users

16 Feb 2015

Mexican-backed operator Claro Peru has launched pre-paid 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services for smartphone, tablet and USB modem users, TeleSemana reports. Claro launched its 4G service in May last year and claimed approximately 600,000 post-paid users by end-2014. The operator plans to invest at least PEN1 billion (USD324.94 million) over the next three years to develop its 4G network. Rival provider Movistar, meanwhile, opened its 4G service to pre-paid customers in late January 2015, and expects to have 250,000 pay-as-you-go LTE users by the end of the year.
