BMI View : Movistar   launch ed 4G services in January 2014, the first ope rator to do so in Peru, improving the outlook for the Peruvian telecoms market. Although Peru trails regional peers in terms of wireless data service uptake, the rollout of 4G services and stronger competition from Claro ,   Entel ( Nextel ) and the expected launch of Viettel in 2014 should help to close the gap. Meanwhile, there continue s to be high levels of postpaid growth among mobile subscriptions, demonstrating a demand for higher-value services among Peruvians, which should allow operators to continue growing their revenues as the market approaches 100% penetration. Positive developments also occurred in the broadband sector, with the government granting a contract to TV Azteca for the installation of the fibre optic backbone network.

Movistar Perú plans to invest more than USD250mn developing and expanding its LTE network in Peru during the next five years. Movistar also announced its 4G...
