Latin America Telecommunications Q4 2018

Key View:

There are significant investment opportunities in the Latin American telecoms market, but regulation and fragmentationremain the key barriers for growth, especially in the wireline segment. The markets in the region are in different stages ofdevelopment, and so regulators seek different goals and operators use different strategies. Economic and political risk cannegatively affect investment even in the more mature markets like Chile and Brazil. Forward-looking investors are looking toupgrade existing networks, and prepared to face low short-term returns. These are a prerequisite to be able to offer advancedservices like video content, IoT and fintech, where investors expect to realise higher returns in the future. Telefónica tends to lead inthis, with América Móvil and Millicom following from a distance.
