Grupo GTD claims that the improvement in the economic situation has been a significant factor in its decision to buy the company.

The company was purchased for a sum which has not been disclosed.

Netline’s fibre-optic network, the majority of which is used by SME’s and corporates, runs through Arequipa, Lima, Moquegua and Trujillo. Netline offers a portfolio of services including dedicated access, interconnection, managed security and fixed telephony.
