Introduction and Landscape
Historically, fiber broadband in Latin America has had a lower penetration rate than in other regions. But in 2013-2018, we expect FTTx accounts to grow at a 40% CAGR. In this report, we examine the status and growth opportunity of fiber-based broadband in Latin America. We highlight the key supply-push factors - regulation, competition and innovation - and the demand-pull factors - consumer, enterprise demand and urbanization - driving the development of FTTx. We believe the region is at an inflection point, where a combination of both supply-push and demand-pull forces are helping fiber-based broadband take off. In the market detail section, the report presents case studies focused on operators Iusacell in Mexico and TIM in Brazil. To provide a perspective beyond Latin America, we also include a market view of Spain and an operator case study on the fiber network-sharing initiative undertaken by Orange and Vodafone in that country. We show how operators in these countries have undertaken FTTx initiatives as a result of a supply push or in response to an uptick in demand for fiber broadband services. The Insider concludes with some recommendations for operators and regulators."
Companies Mentioned in this Report: Totalplay, Iusacell, Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM), Orange, Vodafone, Telmex, Telefonica.
