Peru Broadband and Digital Media Market Overview, Statistics and Analysis
Broadband subscriber penetration in Peru, at about 6%, is considerably lower than the Latin American average. This result is surprising considering that in the days of dial-up internet access internet user was remarkably high. Individuals, businesses, are keen internet advocates, while the government has for long encouraged the development of the sector. There are several reasons for the shortcoming. Besides the obvious barriers such as poverty, limited levels of literacy, low computer penetration, and rugged topography. Perhaps the biggest problem is the lack of competition, which has made broadband in Peru one of the slowest and most expensive in the region. More information on the report
