"An increase in mobile data revenue and the number of fixed deployments will drive growth in the telecoms service revenue in Latin America during the forecast period."

Data will be the main driver of telecoms revenue growth. Mobile operators will focus on data monetisation to fully utilise the improved bandwidth from their 4G investments. In the fixed segment, next-generation access (NGA) roll-outs will lead to some upselling, but affordability issues will limit their impact.

This report and associated data annex provide:


  • a 5-year forecast of 180 mobile and fixed KPIs for the LATAM region as a whole and six key countries

  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries

  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison

  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.

Table of Contents:

8.Executive summary and recommendations
9.Mobile data services, fixed broadband and pay TV will drive the growth in telecoms retail revenue in Latin America during the forecast period
10.Telecoms retail revenue will grow across the region but at a slower rate than the rest of the economy
11.Geographical coverage: the 4G share of connections will be the lowest in Colombia and Peru, but these countries will have some of the highest NGA shares
12.Key trends, drivers and assumptions for the mobile and fixed markets
13.Key recommendations for telecoms operators
14.Regional forecasts and cross-country comparison
15.Market context: economic recovery will continue across the region, but this will have a limited impact on the telecoms sector
16.Key mergers, acquisitions and market entries
17.Key drivers at a glance for each Latin American market
18.Market overview: mobile data and fixed broadband will continue to drive service revenue growth
19.Mobile: data consumption will grow, partly driven by an increase in the number of contract connections, resulting in a positive ARPU trend
20.Mobile: mobile ARPU in LATAM will remain largely constant, except in Argentina due to inflation and in Brazil due to a shift from prepaid to contract connections
21.Mobile: connectivity growth will be limited, but ARPU will be positively affected by an increase in the contract share of connections
22.Fixed: operators’ fibre and cable roll-out plans will have a strong positive effect on NGA adoption across the region
23.Fixed: the growth in fixed broadband penetration will slow down throughout the forecast period due to limited service affordability
24.Fixed: fixed revenue will slowly decline from 2020 onwards due to a decrease in fixed voice revenue, despite revenue growth in FBB and business services
25.Business services: new services will drive revenue growth but dedicated business solutions will remain an important source of revenue
26.IoT: there will be significant growth in IoT connectivity, but IoT will contribute only a small amount to the total operator revenue
27.Pay TV: the popularity of local TV content and sports, particularly football, will prevent a substantial decline in pay-TV prices
28.Individual country forecasts
29.Argentina: double-digit inflation will result in artificially high revenue growth in both fixed and mobile segments
30.Argentina: on top of inflation, the growth in mobile data consumption and NGA technology usage will have a positive impact on revenue
31.Argentina: regulatory changes, new spectrum availability and market consolidation have shaken up the fixed, mobile and pay-TV markets
32.Argentina: forecast changes
33.Brazil: the total telecoms revenue will increase slightly as revenue growth in fixed broadband and mobile data will offset the loss of fixed voice revenue
34.Brazil: mobile ARPU will increase by nearly 20% between 2017 and 2023, driven by a shift from prepaid to contract, as well as strong 4G take-up
35.Brazil: the growth in the number of postpaid mobile and NGA connections will lead to a slow but steady increase in telecom revenue
36.Brazil: forecast changes
37.Chile: revenue growth in FBB and business services will decrease meaning that the total telecoms revenue will stay stable at just below CLP3.9 trillion
38.Chile: fixed broadband ARPU will increase thanks to growth in NGA connectivity, but this will be counterbalanced by a fall in fixed voice ARPU
39.Chile: the total telecoms revenue will be negatively affected by competition in mobile services and by declining voice services revenue
40.Chile: forecast changes
41.Colombia: revenue growth is set to slow down considerably after 2017 as fixed broadband growth slows and business revenue starts to decline
42.Colombia: FBB ASPU will grow by 11% during the forecast period as the number of cable connections grows and fibre becomes more widespread
43.Colombia: mobile operators are rolling out LTE-A networks in order to increase 4G take-up
44.Colombia: forecast changes
45.Mexico: the number of mobile connections is steadily increasing, and the number of IoT connections is expected to grow to 28.9 million by 2023
46.Mexico: mobile data traffic is set to increase six-fold from 2017 to 2023, as 4G connections start to dominate and 5G is launched
47.Mexico: the number of connections for newer mobile technologies will be affected by changes in spectrum allocation
48.Mexico: forecast changes
49.Peru: the negative CAGR for mobile broadband and fixed voice revenue is balanced by revenue growth for handset and fixed broadband
50.Peru: the number of 4G connections will grow with a CAGR of 19% between 2017 and 2023; the contract share of connections will remain stable
51.Peru: regulatory sanctions should make the mobile market more consumer friendly
Peru: forecast changes
