According to a report from the firm Experian, there are more than 38 million telephone lines in Peru, and the majority of them is concentrated in Lima.
The capital of the country has 10.7 million lines, between prepaid and postpaid plans, followed by La Libertad, Arequipa and Piura, that have 1.6 million, 1.4 million and 1.3 million lines respectively.
“Mobile phones have become an important element in our lives, (…) they allow us access to the internet, social networks, entertainment apps and, of course, they are also a work tool”, said Juan Carlos Torres, manager of BI & Analytics of Experian to Perú 21.
The media also mentions that since the approval of the Mobile Telephony Portability Law in 2014, 10 million lines have migrated to another telephone operator.
“It should be noted that between 2016 and 2017, Telefónica del Perú was the operator that lost more lines due to migration, going from 16.7 million to 14.8 million lines”, Perú 21 informed.
