Internet in Peru: Road to the big depression
Thanks to Cisco and Ookla, is formalized a known “mouth to mouth” truth: We have notonlythe second worst internet service in Latin America,but we haveone of the worst services in the planet. And this situation threatens to perpetuate due to a lot of bills and trade agreements thatpromotes censorship and impunity for the bad services that intentionally wreckscommunications, making them worse than they already are.This an english version and resume from a lot of articles in spanish (some made by myself or other sources) about the sad situation about telcos and privacy in Peru. I will resumethem in three points.
1.-Piracy is not the problem (much less here). The problem is greed and ineptitude
. As i said, we have the second worst internet service in Latin America. As result, e-commerce is minimal in Peru due to distrust in our services and banks, that doesn'tprovide the right media to use them. Only 10% of people in Peru has internet access(mixingthis datawiththis other ). To this i add the abuses from ISP against their consumers, blocking services/sites at their whim (
), applying traffic shaping policies and even
that proves that measures (like
), despite that
.The article 283from Criminal Code forbids any form of interruption against communications, but is deadletter.One of that providers (America Movil aka Claro) wanted impunity against this by
a
cybercrime bill, that free Claro from two cases of abuse, one related to a mexican drugcartel (the
case).Claro is currently in Bad ISP List from Bittorrent client Vuze
due to it's attacks to netneutrality and business freedom
, not only Bittorrent traffic.
Going back to e-commerce, the advertising from “mouth to mouth” (sharing music/linkscan be an example) has a lot of relevance in Peru. A lot of blogs and even tv shows grewup thanks to it. And foreign artists/bands took advantage of this too. Recently,a korean pop group camehere with a lot of acceptation, despite no data of them in local media. Legal offer is reallylowdue to whimsey from copyright industry.However, despite of it's sucess, that “mouth to mouth” is at risk of dissapearing.
 
2.-Free trade = deafness and thuggery
 This sounds like an european issue, but we have more. Last week, our ForeignTrade/Tourism Ministry (MINCETUR by it's acronym in Spanish) José Luis Silva, called a“open discuss” about a bill to regulate liabilities on Internet Service Providers (since now,ISP) and even created with a known lawyer a site togather/publish infoabout it(responsabilidad-isp.pe, now dead).For the sensitivity of the issue, that discuss was called as “SOPA Criolla” o “SOPAperuana” (peruvian SOPA), referring to it's extinct U.S. equivalent.This week, the process was sabotaged by their own promotors. Last Monday, one daybefore first journey to discuss this, responsabilidad-isp.pe site andit's Twitter pagewas“cleaned”. And things was getting worse since then.Erick Iriarte, an IP-specialized lawyer,owns the business that made resposnabilidad-isp.pe and was one of the “spokesmen” that call this as a “open discuss”, but he disclaims when iasked for that issue. This makes doubts about his words. And MINCETUR offers no explanation about this issue, blindly trusting on it's littlediffusion. However, i asked for it intheir Facebook page, they disclaims any liability...
 
despite that they promoted the idea.“This website is part of the work required by the MINCETUR and is under the IDB'ssupport for dialogue on Responsibility of ISPs in copyright and related rights in the digitalenvironment in Peru”.Rescued from Google cache of responsabilidad-isp.pe, before their elimination. And MINCETUR with Silva at head, has a bad history about transparency. Last June,wealerted about a dangerous article in the EU Trade Agreement. The article 254 hasmeasures that forces any service provider to bring personal data and activity from their clients to third parties with the excuse of piracy. The MINCETUR ignored itand signed theagreement the day 26
 Now is pending it's ratification,planned to December 10
 and this agreement is beingimpulsed by the “ACTA lobbyist” Karel De Gucht. Be careful.The article 254 paradoxically is known as "No general obligation to monitor", but it'smeasures ignores any disclaimer from ISPs enabled in other articles.1.-A Party shall not impose a general obligation on service providers, when providing theservices covered in articles 251, 252 and 253, to monitor the information which theytransmit or store, nor a general obligation to actively seek for facts or circumstancesindicating illegal activities.<here comes the creepiest part>2.-
The Parties may ESTABLISH OBLIGATIONS for services providers to promptlyinform the competent public authorities of alleged illegal activities undertaken or of information provided by recipients of their service, or obligations to communicateto the competent authorities
, upon request of such authorities, information enabling theidentification of recipients of their services with whom they have storage agreements.
