An earthquake measuring 5.8 that hit central Peru on Monday (Nov 25) caused congestion in mobile and fixed communications in the country's Lima and Ica departments, telecoms services regulator Osiptel reported.

The regulator also informed that the congestion was resolved during the day.

The regulator urged the population to use SMS and other messaging services to avoid congestion of networks in the event of an earthquake.
