The Andean countries are Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru, which present considerable diversity in their general telecom indicators, but have much in common with regard to geographical challenges, technologies being developed, and opportunities for growth. This annual report offers a wealth of information on the trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, broadband, digital TV, and converging media including VoIP and IPTV developments.
BuddeComm’s latest Annual Publication on the Andean countries profiles five countries with highly diverse telecom infrastructure – from Chile, which is the most advanced telecom market in the region, to Bolivia, one of the poorest and less developed countries in South America.
Nevertheless, all five countries have one feature in common: the presence of the Andes mountain system, which extends for more than 8,900km along the entire length of western South America, forming a natural wall separating the narrow western coastal region from the rest of the continent. Fixed-line teledensity is limited throughout the Andes by low population density and the rough mountainous terrain that has hindered the laying of copper wire.
This report presents a concise overview of sector liberalisation and privatisation in the Andean sub-region, government initiatives and regulations in the telecom industry, the development of product offerings for both mobile and broadband technologies, essential country and operator statistics in all telecom sectors, and the emergence of convergence and triple play.
