ICT regulatory roundup: Peru, Mexico, Argentina

Bnamericas Published: Tuesday, December 13, 2022

Following the political crisis in Peru, President Dina Boluarte presented her cabinet but left the posts of transportation and communications (MTC) and labor ministers vacant.

MTC minister Richard Tineo Quispe resigned last Wednesday following the decision of then president Pedro Castillo to dissolve congress, after which he was ousted.

On the same day, MTC published the resolution that updated the definition of broadband from 4Mbps to 20Mbps for downloading and from 1Mbps to 7Mbps for uploading.

In the case of mobile internet, the minimum speed that a service must have to be considered broadband will be 5Mbps for downloads and 2Mbps for uploads.

The definition of broadband is key in Peru since the minimum internet speed law is only applicable for connections that are considered broadband.


Peru’s competition and intellectual property regulator Indecopi imposed a fine of 46,000 soles (US$11,902) on Telefónica for violating the consumer protection and defense code.

The company did not respond to four complaints filed by consumers for its Movistar Play service, according to reports.


Mexico’s chamber of deputies approved reforms to the federal telecommunications law regarding compensation for the granting of extensions to radio and television contracts.

From now on, the number of stations and the economically active population in the coverage area will be considered instead of the general population to calculate the compensation. In addition, a new payment is established annually.

Regulator IFT must determine the compensation for the use of radio spectrum.


Argentina’s cabinet appointed, on a temporary basis, Flavia Andrea Rizzo as national director of telecommunications policies and information and communication technologies of the undersecretariat of telecommunications and connectivity of the secretariat of public innovation. The appointment, valid for 180 business days, will date from September 12.
