  • How would you define the issue “Connecting the Next Billion”?
    It is defined as a network connection networks of knowledge, challenge to build a new model of Educational System: productive and human society to achieve a smart, road to equal opportunities.
  • Have you observed any regional or national specificities regarding connectivity (e.g. Internet industry development)?
    In regard to the development of the Internet industry in the Peruvian case, it is in 90th behind Chile

    This is due to the lack of political will, there is no continuity of governance and institutions, the legal framework is not at the level of technological infrastructure; techno phobic remain governments, governments who believe that technology is a tool to be used in power

    If Monopoly Peru and Latin America, where always wins the same operator has opportunities in various tenders is maintained..

    Another aspect that technological Internet infrastructure is not developed is due to geographical and climatic reality of the country, while it is true there are experts in technology, but are not specialists in geographic areas, lacking the commitment of other social actors to involved in the project

    To conclude in the case of Peru, you can not develop Internet industry for the same consumer system designed by the same government in power, there is no public policies that contribute to the development of the Internet to increase in its budget, the education system is traditional nothing innovative or creative to encourage the development of internet, also the Peruvian educational system teaches applied technologies, but not copy fosters creativity; no difficulty developing internet infrastructure being a multicultural country that does not compare to other countries linked to technology.

    In terms of South America Chile leads the way by being a government and (I) working through links and connections work institutional landscape for the common good considering its population of national interest.


  • Do you know of existing policy measures, and private sector or civil society initiatives addressing connectivity? If yes, was the policy a government policy, industry policy (either collective best practice or corporate policy), technical policy, or did i
    Since the arrival of the internet in Peru some actors from the creation of the Committee on Development of the Information Society (CODESI) initiative of the National Bureau of Electronic and Information Presidency of the Council of Ministers 2004 Government began work on the connectivity topic see link for more information see (II) link

    As well as interest in the beginning of the

    In Peru clearly shows the interest of private companies, rather than the interest of government, just a matter of respect or interest civil society and government involved, so if there is no reform, they are clear rules on regulatory frameworks do not go hand in hand with technology.
  • In your opinion, what worked well in the development of the policy, and what impediments were encountered?
    Policy actions that occurred as digital agenda through CODESI that began in 2004 had good start, unfortunately the change of government in power is an obstacle because there is still continuity policies, each government enters with new government plan where sometimes they promise on paper but in practice not met, only meet a minimum percentage of interest will to work in ICT infrastructure and we see that Peru is ranked 90 below Chile and other developing countries as you can see the link of the first settled question.
  • What was the experience with implementation?
    The application is an issue of regulatory framework, do not walk on par with Tic infrastructure companies also lack of professionalism and lack of public officials make the government is not efficient and effective.
  • Did you experience any unintended consequences of policy developments/interventions, good and bad?
    The evolution of the policies of each government in turn are based on the behavior of citizens, the claims of citizens before the operators for the service they provide are not treated as they should, the competent institutions of the state are made deaf ears and make everything resolved private companies and the rules are not so clear ie are generic and not specific.

    For example in relation to broadband, an X operator puts you on your bill that is giving you 4 megs, but when you do the testing says 2 MB, but when you make a claim you answer is approximately where Law is, where is the rule regulating, unaware citizens in regard to infrastructure, companies design their infrastructure to lead a community internet line end up cobwebs and ceilings where they begin to be damaged, etc. .
  • Can you think of unresolved issues where further multistakeholder cooperation is needed?
    When strategic alliances work well organized and planned manner would have no problem, the big problem of governments who have foresight and vision companies have this.

    A good broadband policy must be developed comprehensively and Regional vision domain geopolitical and identity and climatological geography give a good start to learn to design a well-designed technological infrastructure, is a team of different interdisciplinary professionals with experience and knowledge.

    The multi-stakeholder partnerships will always give as regulatory frameworks and public policies of each government are specific and not generic
  • Did you gain any insight as a result of the experience?
    Emphasizing the theme "Connecting the next billion" not only must think broadband internet, the most important is the knowledge and information to citizens about government plans and companies in ICT can be given through training technology centers in organizing and prioritizing communes in rural areas having making them understand that will be productive for the community and for this we must take into account the geographical reality and cultural codes of indigenous peoples without harming the ecosystem.

    I would say that strategic allies is to raise awareness to the public.
  • List proposed steps for further multistakeholder dialogue/actions.
    proposals:
    1.-Design the strategic plan
    2. Organize
    3. Citizen Participation (training)
    4. Teamwork (bench)
    5. Supervision and monitoring
