- The lack of competition in the fixed telecommunications market in Uruguay has not been a limiting factor for the development of the sector. The country is today one of the most penetrated in Latin America, with the number of telecom lines per 100 inhabitants considerably above the regional average at year-end 2013. Uruguay's broadband penetration of the population is also well above the Latin American average, surpassed only by Puerto Rico's. The availability of broadband infrastructure at affordable prices has been key to the proliferation of broadband services in the country.
- Uruguay's Digital Agenda for 2011-2015 sets a number of milestones aimed at reaching universal broadband access in the country. Through initiatives ranging from digital inclusion programs to ANTEL's deployment of 4G and FTTH/B next-generation networks, the government expects that by 2015, broadband service, whether fixed or mobile, will be available to 80% of households.
- Pyramid Research expects revenue in the Uruguayan telecom and pay-TV services market to grow 4.2% in 2014. The mobile segment contributed almost half of total telecom revenue in 2013, while fixed voice (circuit-switched and VoIP) and broadband accounted for more than a third. Going forward, we expect fixed broadband to be one of the fastest growing revenue categories.
- With 5.1m mobile subscriptions at year-end 2013, Uruguay is the third most penetrated country in Latin America, after Panama and Chile. We expect mobile subscriptions to increase at a CAGR of 2.9% during the 2014-2018 period.
