 "Roll-out of next-generation access broadband will be the key theme over the next 5 years in the Latin America broadband market."

Total telecoms revenue will grow in major Latin America markets, as there is significant room for growth in terms of smartphone and 4G penetration on the mobile side and high-speed broadband on the fixed side. Sizeable operator investments in both mobile and fixed infrastructure and expected economic growth in most markets will further improve affordability of advanced telecoms services.

This report and associated data annex provide:

  • a 5-year forecast of 175 mobile and fixed KPIs for Latin America, as a whole and 7 key countries
  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries
  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison
  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.
