Chile - Fixed-Line Market and Infrastructure - Overview, Statistics and Forecasts
Chile's fixed-line market has been stagnating for more than a decade. Teledensity is about 14% higher than average for Latin America, but lags behind Costa Rica, Uruguay, Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, and a number of Caribbean small island nations. Chile's largest telecom company is the incumbent local telephony operator Telefónica Chile, which trades as Movistar. Its main competitors are pay TV/triple play operator VTR Globalcom, incumbent long-distance provider Entel Chile, the GDT group (including GTD Manquehue, GTD Telesat, Telsur, and Telcoy), and América Móvil's Claro Chile. In a bid to unify services under a single trademark, the fixed-line business previously conducted by Telmex Chile has been taken over by mobile operator Claro Chile, both companies being controlled by Mexican tycoon Carlos Slim. This report provides an overview of Chile's telecom infrastructure and brief profiles of the main fixed network operators, accompanied by relevant statistics, analyses, and fixed-line scenario forecasts for the years 2015 and 2020.
