Paraguay Telecommunications Report 2015

Paraguay Telecommunications Report 2015

BMI View: The weak consumer spending outlook, an unfocused regulatory regime, an imbalance ofcompetition in the wireline voice and mobile markets characterise Paraguay as a chronic underperformerin the Latin American region. Growth prospects for the five years through to 2019 are very limited andthere is little scope for new entrants. That said, much-needed consolidation in the fragmented cable TVsector is underway, potentially unlocking the value of the country's underdeveloped wireline market. Fornow, however, the market is set to be dominated by Tigo, a situation unlikely to have changed five yearsfrom now.
