Chile Telecommunications Report Q3 2015

BMI View: The announcement that 700MHz frequencies will be awarded to the three mobile operatorsClaro, Movistar and Entel in the first half of 2015 is an important step for the market. Movistar and Entelhave already contracted equipment vendors to roll out LTE services in the 700MHz band, this should helpto speed up the new spectrum release to the public. Uptake of 3G services in Chile has been among thestrongest in the Latin America region, driven by a healthy competition between Claro, Movistar and Entel,with support from Subtel and the government. 4G services are also available from all three operators, withVTR soon to be the fourth operator to launch LTE. The allocation of 700MHz spectrum will relieve networkcongestion problems, as well as expand internet access to rural areas of the population at a low cost,benefitting operators and consumers from low prices. Nextel's divestment of its Chilean subsidiary to UKbasedNovator Partners could bring a change into the market share distribution.
