Peru opens door to MVNOs

7 Aug 2015

Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) has published regulations on the introduction of mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) as part of efforts to improve competition in the sector. Under the terms of the law, mobile network operators (MNOs) may not be affiliated with MVNOs and must provide the same standard of quality of service (QoS) to customers of MVNOs hosted on their networks as they provide their own subscribers. Regional heavyweight Virgin Mobile and Chilean retail group Falabella, which offers MVNO services in its domestic market, have expressed an interest in launching in Peru. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the regulations covered under the new legislation (Law 30083) received parliamentary approval in September 2013, but were only written into law this month.
