Telefónica Peru was granted permission to share its radio access network with rival Entel Peru in order to meet increased demand during the COVID‑19 pandemic. The Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones (Ministry of Transport and Communications/MTC) said the active infrastructure-sharing agreement will enable the two operators to make more efficient use of their existing resources. The MTC added that the agreement does not exempt the two operators from fulfilling obligations defined in their concession contracts.
