San Bartolo, Chaclacayo and Punta Negra are the three districts that show better performance in the quality of the services of telephony and mobile internet, according to the 2018 District Mobile Quality Ranking developed by Osiptel.
The regulator the quality of both services measured in 49 jurisdictions of Metropolitan Lima. "It should be noted that the mentioned jurisdictions have low population density and lower demand (less congested) seasonal," he explained.
On the other hand, districts of Barranco, La Molina and Santiago de Surco, whose population is constant all year round, record the best performances in quality compared to the other districts of the capital.
While districts like it Villa El Salvador, Ancon, San Juan de Miraflores, Carabayllo, Santa Rosa and Pachacámac show a lower performance of quality in the study carried out between the months of May and June of this year.
Speed on the internet
In the study, the Osiptel analyzed various variables such as 3G signal coverage, voice quality and average download speed in 3G and 4G networks, measurements taken during a trip through the streets of the districts with the latest equipment. Information that is expressed in a comparative index that also includes the non-established call attempts (TINE) and the interrupted call rate (TLLI), which are periodically reported by the operating companies.

In many cases it is appreciated that districts with a lower socio-economic status, they have lower levels of the quality indicator of the district (such as Villa El Salvador, San Juan de Miraflores, Ancon, Carabayllo, Pachacamac, Santa Rosa).
"The districts with a lower socio-economic level usually have a lower level of the District Quality Indicator, which in many cases is due to the low spread of adequate infrastructure," said Rafael Muente, president of Osiptel a RPP News.
