Chile Telecommunications Report Q1 2016
BMI View: We have left our estimations and forecasts for our Q1 2016 report of the Chileantelecommunications market unrevised largely because the market has performed broadly in line with ourprevious projections. 3G and 4G services will continue to drive growth and WOM mobile and Virgin alongwith smaller players like VTR will look to gain a percentage of the market. The country's MVNOs alreadycater to the lower end of the market and we believe that VTR and WOM will struggle to make massive shortterm gains as the three large companies look to lure customers towards high value prepaid packages.
Latest Updates & Industry Developments
The Chilean mobile market lost 377,000 subscribers in H1 2015 and we attribute this largely due to thediscounting of inactive sim cards. The prime focus of the three large operators is now on migratingprepaid customers to value added data packs. 3G and 4G services will be the primary drivers of growthwith 3G and 4G connections reaching over 22.5mn at the end of our forecast period in 2019.
