Main opportunities: this section details the near-term opportunities for operators, vendors and investors in Honduras’s telecommunications and pay-TV markets.
Competition in the Honduran telecom and pay-TV market has been stable in the recent years. Around 75% of total telecoms revenue is concentrated in the hands of top two players: Tigo and Claro, both offering mobile/fixed voice, broadband and pay-TV services. Hondutel, which also operates in the fixed and mobile communications segments, ranks in a third distant position.
Honduras continues to exhibit one of the lowest fixed-line penetration levels in the region. This can be mainly attributed to an historical lack of investment in network infrastructure, particularly outside the main cities.
The lack of reliable fixed-line infrastructure outside large urban areas and the popularization of mobile communications services across the country have pushed many Hondurans to opt for mobile technology as their primary form of communication.
The pay-TV market in reached a penetration rate of 18.7%, as of year-end 2016, one of the lowest Central America, indicating there is still quite a lot of room for growth in the market, particularly for those operators offering basic and entry pay-TV packages.
