BMI View: Increased competition on the Columbian mobile market is eroding the market shares oftraditional mobile network operators such as Claro. Virgin Mobile has been particularly successful inincreasing its presence in the Columbian market, growing its market share from zero to almost 4% in justtwo years. The regulator is keen to open the market up to new MVNOs and has recently launched aconsultation to revise the rules for introduction of new MVNOs. It has been reported that Spain's MVNOPepephone is interested in starting operations in Colombia. Additionally, the Columbian ICT ministry haspublished rules for another 4G auction, which means that additional bandwidth will be available to themarket as of 2016. This should have a positive impact on LTE services growth.
