BuddeComm’s Annual Publication, 2008 Latin America - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Mexico and the Caribbean, profiles the fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets from the small island nations through to the larger countries of Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
Despite being relatively small markets by global standards, telecommunications has become one of the Caribbean’s major growth industries. In particular, the region’s mobile sector has been witnessing significant expansion in recent years. To date this growth has largely been harnessed by Mexico’s América Móvil and more recently by Digicel. These two companies are predicted to continue dominating the robust mobile sector growth during 2008/09.
In contrast to the mobile sector, the fixed-line market remains relatively stagnant. While in a handful of countries Cable & Wireless still holds a monopoly in the fixed-line sector, a growing number of countries now have other operators offering fixed-line services at competitive prices. Investment in infrastructure during 2008/09 is expected to increasingly trend towards broadband access and associated IP services, such as VoIP.
This report provides overviews, analyses and detailed statistics of the Mexican and Caribbean countries’ fixed-line, mobile and broadband markets including developments in emerging technologies such wireless broadband and VoIP.
