Draft Rule Regulating the Sharing of Active Infrastructure of the Telecommunications Network was published
On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Ministerial Resolution No. 136-2021-MTC/01 was published in the Official Gazette “El Peruano”, which provides for the publication of the draft Supreme Decree adopting the Rule Regulating the Sharing of Active Infrastructure of the Telecommunications Network (the “Draft Rule“), as well as its Statement of Reasons on the institutional portal of the Ministry of Transport and Communications (the “MTC“). It is worth mentioning that said Draft includes the comments submitted to the draft published by Ministerial Resolution No. 0850-2020-MTC/01.03, dated November 2020.
The purpose of the Draft Rule aims to regulate the access and shared use of the active infrastructure of the telecommunications network without involving the radio spectrum. In that sense, unlike the first published version, the purpose of this draft is to expand the coverage of mobile public services and to improve the provision of services to users nationwide by promoting the sharing of active infrastructure of the telecommunications network.
The main amendments made to the Draft Rule with respect to the November 2020 draft are the following:
Interested parties may submit their comments to the Draft Regulation via the MTC Virtual Party Table with attention to the General Directorate of Communications Policy and Regulation, or via email to email@example.com, until March 6, 2021.
