Mobile data represents a significant growth opportunity for operators to offset the slowing rise of net additions and pricing pressures. Additionally the upcoming spectrum auctions in 900MHz and AWS spectrum bands expected for H1 2017 will drive operators to increase investments in upgrading their 4G/LTE infrastructures.
The top three operators, Tigo, Claro and Movistar, will account for 93.0% of overall service revenue in 2016. While the incumbent Claro is the market leader in the fixed voice and Internet segments, the mobile segment is led by Tigo.
The number of 3G and 4G subscriptions will surpass 2G in 2017, driven by increasing adoption of mobile data plans and continued expansion of 3G/4G coverage.
