Expansion of Fiber Technology

"The increase in traffic through fiber optics is a reflection of Movistar's efforts to popularise this technology, which offers a substantial improvement in connectivity quality for our customers. This, combined with efforts to broaden access, allows more people to hire or migrate to this technology, which offers speeds up to 20 times higher than the average," said Telefonica del Peru.

4G Network Traffic

Additionally, Telefonica noted a significant increase on its 4G network, covering 93 percent of mobile data traffic, in cities such as Lima (20 percent), Arequipa, La Libertad, and Cusco (17 percent), Junín (16 percent), and Piura and Lambayeque (12 percent).
