More than 183,000 people in 371 localities of Peru's Cuzco department will benefit from a US$108mn investment in broadband infrastructure due to be completed in the first quarter of 2019, the transport and communications ministry MTC said in a statement.

Citing data from universal services fund Fitel, the MTC said that the projects, tendered in 2015, are designed to benefit agriculture, as well as enable training for local companies in e-commerce and innovation.

In March, the MTC said it will use US$665mn from Fitel to award contracts for broadband projects in six regions –Áncash, Arequipa, Huánuco, La Libertad, Pasco and San Martín. The tenders will be carried out in the last quarter of the year and be conducted by investment promotion agency ProInversión.

In December last year, Proinversión awarded seven regional broadband projects expected to directly benefit 1,432 localities.
