"Pyramid Research believes that MVNO subscriptions in the Latin American market will expand, although they will continue to account for a small percentage of the subscription base," says Eulalia Marin-Sorribes, Research Analyst at Pyramid Research. Their introduction will not drastically change the current market structure but will definitely help operators to streamline operations and segment service offerings more efficiently to reach broader audiences, without losing focus on their core business.
