Mobile Internet Options in Cusco

Mobile Internet Options in Cusco

I will be flying next week to Cusco and I can't afford to be disconnected because of work. Mobile internet is fine. My option is to get a chip in Cusco to stay connected. Forum says that Claro and Movistar are the leading telco providers in Peru.

I just need some recommendations on where I can get a sim card in the airport (or outside) to avoid getting ripped-off? Which one would you recommend for faster internet connectivity? Calls are not necessary for me. I just need an internet connection for 1 week preferably 1-2GB of data.

Thanks in advance!

Might be too late to help, but I just got back from Peru. Don't get a SIM from the airport, they were charging USD$50 for one there. Go into town and find a Movistar store. You can get a prepay SIM with 1GB of data per week for an initial cost of 40 soles and then 7 soles every week (Tuesday) to top up another 1GB. You might need to go to a store where they recharge (there are corner stores all over town that do this ) as the online top-up page proved too difficult for me. You can only call/txt in Peru , not internationally so its best just for data. Internet speed was fine in most areas.
