The Peruvian government has sent to Congress a bill that provides for the automatic delivery of permits for the expansion of telecommunications infrastructure.

The project says there can be no administrative measures to prohibit the installation of basic infrastructure for the provision of services.

The initiative, signed by President Ollanta Humala, provides that sectoral, regional and municipal authorisations be subject to a process of instant approval.

Operators shall only submit a work plan of public works, website Telecompaper reported, citing Lima daily Peru 21.

The government justified this initiative with the fact that certain municipalities have imposed excessive charges for installing posts and telecommunications cabling.
