2007 Latin America - Telecoms and Fixed-Line Statistics (tables only)


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

While Latin America’s fixed lines stagnate at 17% teledensity, mobile subscribers have overtaken their fixed-line counterparts in every country except Cuba. Paraguay leads the trend, with ten mobile phones for every fixed line in service. Telecom infrastructure varies from nonexistent to rudimentary and from adequate to well advanced in some major cities.

This report gives an overview of the all Telco activities in Latin America and marketing information for fixed-line operations. Major statistics include key country indicators, subscriber numbers, annual change and penetration percentages; number of fixed lines in service and teledensity; major operator statistics, growth indications and historical data. Some of the data is not current, but was the latest available at the time of publication.
