Venezuela - Fixed-Line Market and Infrastructure - Insights, Statistics and Forecasts
Venezuela's fixed-line teledensity remains one of the highest in Latin America, though growth in the number of lines has fallen sharply in recent years, being only 0.4% in the first half of 2014.
In the local telephony market, four companies compete with state-owned incumbent CANTV: NetUno, Inter, Movistar, and Digitel. NetUno and Inter are primarily cable TV companies, while Movistar and Digitel are primarily mobile operators. NetUno and Inter provide fixed-line services over their cable TV network as part of triple play packages (including pay TV, broadband, and fixed-line telephony). Movistar and Digitel offer local phone services using fixed-wireless technology.
Almost two-thirds of Venezuela's local telephone services are prepaid. As in the mobile market, the prepaid option makes phone lines more affordable for lower-income households.
