Details: Chilean government progresses with 3,000km Fibra Optica Austral fibre networkChiles telecom sector is among the most developed in Latin America, with the modern infrastructure supporting a range of services in the fixed-line, digital media and mobile sectors. Full competition in all market segments has been encouraged by an effective regulatory regime. The countrys market-oriented economy has also made it a popular target with both national and international investors.
Chiles fixed-line teledensity remains below the South American average, despite the countrys relatively high GDP per capita and the healthy investment environment. Teledensity peaked in 2001 and has since fallen, a trend which is being pushed by consumer adoption of mobile services for both voice calls and mobile broadband, which is reducing demand for fixed-line infrastructure but leading to a steady climb in the use of mobile voice and data services.
The incumbent telco TelefOnica Chile, trading as Movistar, has effective competition from VTR Globalcom, the GTD Group, Entel, and Claro. VTR is the leading provider of cable TV and cable broadband, and the second largest provider of local telephony. The GTD Group operates through seven subsidiaries, including GTD Manquehue, GTD Telesat, and Telsur, which provide voice, data, and video services for residential and business customers. Entel offers fixed-line services primarily to the wholesale and corporate segments.
Chiles broadband penetration is relatively high for the region, and broadband services are among the fastest and least expensive in Latin America. In terms of both broadband penetration and broadband speed, Chile ranks second in South and Central America after Uruguay.
Mobile penetration is also among the highest in South America, and as a result growth has slowed considerably. In the first half of 2016 the subscriber base fell 1.2% year-on-year, though some recovery is anticipated into 2017 as the availability of LTE networks and services widens. Movistar and Entel remain the market leaders, with a similar market share, while Claro accounts for about 23.7% of the market. There is a growing number of smaller MVNOs, which together have 3% of the market. New entrants include Virgin Mobile, which has a presence in a number of other markets in the region, as well as Vodafone.
The significant growth in the number of LTE subscribers in recent quarters highlights operator focus on mobile broadband and data services as a source of revenue in coming years. This is being supported by the growing adoption of smartphones, in turn driven by the popularity of social media and improved 3G and LTE coverage, as well as by the reduction in the price of devices.
