December 14, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 14, 2018--The “Chile - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report provides an overview of Chile’s telecom sector and regulatory environment and includes a range of statistical data and market analyses.

The report also covers the mobile sector including profiles of operators and the key MVNOs. It also reviews the fixed-line and fixed-wireless broadband segments, including profiles of the main players, market statistics, analyses, and subscriber forecasts.

Chile’s telecom sector is among the most developed in Latin America, with a modern infrastructure supporting a range of services in the fixed-line and mobile sectors. Full competition in all market segments has been encouraged by an effective regulatory regime. The country’s market-oriented economy has also made it popular for both national and international investors.

Fixed-line teledensity remains below the South American average: 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. The leading fixed-line operator is the incumbent Telefnica Chile, trading as Movistar. Its main competitors are VTR Globalcom (VTR), the GTD Group, Entel, and Claro.
