FTTH/B in Latin America: Broadband Regulation and Demand for Higher Bandwidth Will Fuel Fiber Growth
‘Latin America will reach 73.4m broadband accounts by year-end 2015, with FTTH/B lines representing 6.9% of the total. By year-end 2020, FTTH/B lines will represent 19.4% of all broadband accounts in Latin America, while xDSL and cable together will account for 76.5% of the total. Brazil will exhibit the highest FTTH/B subscription CAGR during the 2015-2020 period driven by its National Broadband Plan and a push from operators to encourage migration from xDSL to FTTH/B
Latin America will exhibit the highest CAGR for FTTH/B connections among all regions for the 2015-2020 period, at 32.6%. FTTH/B connections will reach 20.8m by year-end 2020, the equivalent of 19.4% of all broadband lines in the region. Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Uruguay will see the highest participation of FTTH/B within the broadband market.
This growth will be highly driven by the regulatory framework in Latin America that, through various national broadband plans, will foster the rollout of fiber infrastructure via state-incentives and private investments such as in Brazil and Colombia. Nevertheless, regulatory inefficiencies and imbalances such as the ban imposed on Mexican incumbents on selling pay-TV services, hinder FTTH/B rollout and development. This has prompted operators such as Axtel to build their own fiber infrastructure in order to sell broadband and pay-TV services.
The increasing demand for bandwidth is also a key driver. In the business segment, rising demand for cloud computing will drive FTTH/B adoption, as high bandwidth is a key premise for a successful cloud computing implementation
