Central America Telecommunications Report Q3 2015

BMI View: Number portability, with four out of eight countries having implemented or in the process ofimplementing a form of number porting, should encourage an increase in competition, but the progress willdepend on the commitment of the individual countries. Mobile forecasts show much slower growth acrossthe board, with only Nicaragua offering any real growth potential. Increasing government interference, asis the case of Guatemala, is a worrying new development. Data-driven 3G/4G services will offer realgrowth potential as all the large operators are investing heavily into new infrastructure.

Key Data

Number porting in Panama increased 37.4% in 2014, highlighting that the population is increasinglymore willing to take advantage of better available deals as they switch operators.

It is likely that the share of pre-paid mobile subscriptions in Costa Rica will increase in 2015 as theregulator SUTEL made it mandatory for pre-paid users to register to boost mobile number portability inthe country. BMI has downgraded the mobile outlook for Guatemala as it emerged that the government isplanning to implement a new tax on mobile operators as of 2015.
