The launch of Bitel, offering low cost, prepaid services, while Entel has adopted an aggressive strategy that will increase competition. Meanwhile, Azteca's Fibre Optic Backbone Network, set to be completed in March 2016, will significantly boost wireline broadband coverage, although mobile broadband will continue to be a key growth area. Despite telecoms penetrations lagging behind many other countries in the region, the market is innovative with mobile banking and OTT TV launching. Due to Peru's size, stronger long-term growth can be achieved if infrastructural problems and piracy are overcome.
