2013-03-22 17:08:11 - Fast Market Research recommends "Peru Telecommunications Report Q2 2013" from Business Monitor International, now available
BMI View: Compared to its regional neighbours, Peru continues to underperform. Mobile subscriber numbers are growing steadily, but penetration rates still sit below the 100% market - we do not forecast it will pass this rate until end-2013. Purchasing power is low, and ARPUs are mute as a result, and in terms of technology, it lags behind other Latin American countries with little prospect of 4G on the short-term horizon. Part of the market's slow development has been because of the dominance of Telefonica Movistar and Claro in the country - which has left little room for other operators to develop a presence. In broadband, the government has plans to expand Peru's fibre-optic network in a move to connect around
179 towns and cities that currently do not have high-speed internet connections. This should generate additional demand for wireline internet services and will facilitate the provision of other services, such as internet TV.

* The rate of net additions slowed again this quarter, and in Q312, operators reported that they had gained 565,000 new mobile subscribers. The market is on target to reach 100% penetration by late 2013.
* Movistar and Claro both turned around previous quarters of decline in terms of ARPUs, with both operators reporting minor increases: Movistar leads with PEN25 ARPU while Claro follows close behind on PEN23, according to the latest data from Q312.
* The fixed-line market continues to surprise, demonstrating a resilience not seen in other markets. The latest regulatory data for Q212 show that subscriber numbers climbed, just passing the 3mn mark. During our forecast period, however, we continue to predict a decline in subscriber numbers as demand for mobile becomes ever greater.
Peru remained in ninth place in our Q213 Risk/Reward Ratings. Peru's strongest score is in the Country Risk's indicator, reflecting its transparent operating environment. Improvements to ARPU are helping Peru stay in the middle of the table, but Peru continues to underperform and this puts pressure on its position in the table.
Key Trends & Developments
Chile's Entel is considering expanding its presence in Peru with the acquisition of Nextel. Media reports claim Entel has presented an offer to Nextel's parent company, NII Holdings, in January 2013. Spanish telecoms and technology group Ezentis entered into a EUR48mn deal with Telefonica in Peru. The four-year deal, signed in January 2013, will see Ezentis provide Telefonica with services in the country. However, these have not been specified.
A Special Multiparty Commission on Citizen Safety, part of Peru's Congress, approved placing a limit on the number of prepaid and postpaid mobile phones to five per user in December 2012. The aim of this ruling is to reduce the incidence of crime that involves the use of prepaid mobile phones.
