Jan 4, 2012

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As an active subscriber to Pyramid's Latin America research and analysis, you know the value of high-quality, timely information covering the telecom trends in the region. We at Pyramid Research wanted to inform you of some new Country Intelligence Reports now available.

Pyramid's Country Intelligence Reports offer detailed analysis of market trends, regulatory environments and competitive dynamics for 60 different countries worldwide, including 18 markets in Latin America. Here are some of the new reports:

Guatemala: Data Services and Pay-TV Present Numerous Opportunities
The telecommunications market in Guatemala, the largest in Central America, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6 percent between 2011 and 2016, driven by an increase in data services (fixed and mobile) and growth in pay-TV household penetration.

Opportunities in the mobile segment exist in mobile data services, particularly mobile broadband. The fixed market remains largely underpenetrated, and multiplay bundling presents interesting opportunities for increasing uptake of several services – adoption of prepaid TV and broadband, and PC bundling for both fixed and mobile broadband – while also raising brand loyalty.

Puerto Rico: Regional LTE Pioneer Preps for More LTE Launches in 2012
Data service revenue in Puerto Rico is expected to nearly double from 17 percent in 2011 to 32 percent in 2016, supported by a surge in mobile data services thanks to the implementation of broadband development schemes launched by the FCC.

As LTE networks expand across Puerto Rico, Pyramid Research expects infotainment to gain share in the total data and by 2015 infotainment will be the largest source of revenue in the mobile data segment, generating 45 percent of revenue. Download the report excerpt here.

Bolivia: Mobile Operators Hope for a 3G Boost
Bolivia's telecommunications market is one of the smallest in the region in terms of aggregate revenue, but it is among the fastest growing markets in Latin America, given its continued adoption of mobile services. Pyramid Research expects revenue to grow at a compound annual rate of 6.9 percent through 2016, reaching US$1.46 billion by the end of the period.

After growing 12.5 percent combined from 2010 to 2011, mobile voice and data services will continue to grow at a 7 percent CAGR through 2016. As mobile operators extend their 3G coverage, Pyramid Research expects to see more mobile data users that will fuel the growth of mobile services in the future. Download the report excerpt here.
