The major telephone companies are BiTel ( www.bitel.com.pe), Telefónica Perú (www.telefonica.com.pe), Claro (www.claro.com.pe) and Entel (www.entel.pe). All sell phone cards for public phones, with which you can also conduct overseas calls, about 1 hour to Germany, Austria and Switzerland for US $ 10. Bitel is our favorite and incidentally has the best offer if you want to use Facebook, whatsup unlimited.
