Gilat Peru is the leading alternative communications service provider to rural Peru, providing service to millions of Peruvians across thousands of customer locations. Gilat Peru offers voice, data, Internet and value-added services to residents, government institutions, financials and leading enterprises around the country.
Gilat began operations in Peru in 1998, with the award of the rural telephony project called "Frontera Norte" for FITEL, with approximately 200 sites. Since then, Gilat has participated in most rural communications projects launched by the Peruvian government and have won, either wholly or partially, seven projects.
Overall, Gilat operates over 9,000 telephony sites in Peru, with over a thousand having Internet connectivity. In addition, we have developed services for financial sector customers, such as Banco de la Nacion, utilizing our current infrastructure and providing those customers with Internet, data and telephony services.
Our rural network manages millions of incoming and outgoing minutes every month, serving more than six million people in rural areas. On average, deployment of the network in Peru has reduced the distance between rural phone locations from 50km to 5km.
Gilat Peru complements its services with back office support for subsidized telephony and Internet networks as well as for private Internet, data and telephony clients including a call center, help-desk, network operations center, field service maintenance and a pre-paid calling card platform and distribution channels.
