Telefonica is a telecommunications group of Spain, which informed last week that it would be introducing “open-access” in Peru. This internet service will be provided as “wholesale broadband mobile” and there are aims of reaching out to the rural areas over time.
 
“Internet para Todos Peru”, in short IpT, is the name of the operator which will receive backing from Facebook along with Inter-American Development Bank’s private “investment arm” while the “Development Bank of Latin America” itself will be there as well, as reported Telefonica.
 
In Peru, Telefonica plays the role of the “largest internet provider”, as the company hopes to replicate the “project’s business model” across the countries of Latin America, provided its pilot launch meets with success. This way, the company would make an attempt to reach out to “millions of people” living in the remote areas and provide the mobile broadband service.
 
Last year, Mexico had launched “Red Compartida”, a wholesale mobile network that was circulated on a national level, while Telefonica’s similar launch comes following behind the same. Furthermore Reuters informed that:
“Telefonica said IpT will offer wholesale access to its broadband infrastructure that will allow any mobile operator to provide services in rural communities. Open-access technology and a revenue-sharing model will keep costs low, it added”.
 
Moreover, the company is hopeful about the project and thinks that it might be a way to demonstrate that business models embracing “open-access principles” is also capable of delivering “reasonable financial returns”. In an email, Telefonica stated:
 
“About 100 million people, 20 percent of the Latin American population, do not yet have widespread access to mobile broadband”.
