•In terms of revenue, the Colombian telecommunications (telco) services market grew Xpercent in 2011, reaching $X million.
•In terms of lines, the Colombian telco services market grew X percent in 2011, reaching X million.
•Among the factors impacting the market are companies investing in pay TV services operations and integrating fixed and mobile operations to offer converged services.
•The main drivers for growth are the positive economic outlook, intensifying competition, investments by competitors to offer triple-, quadruple-, and quintuple-play bundles, investments to implement and expand 3rd Generation (3G), long-term evolution (LTE), GigaEthernet, fiber to the home (FTTH) and other networks, as well as the implementation of the Viva Digital Plan, a governmental project that aims to enlarge broadband penetration among people, businesses, and government.
•However, commoditization that results from extreme competition and leads to decreasing margins and a low return on investments (ROI) in the infrastructure network in distant areas and small cities are restraints for the development of the Colombian telco services market development.
•With regard to regulatory issues, Colombia's IT and communications ministry (MinTIC) launched in 2010 its “Vive Digital Colombia” project that aims to enlarge the usage of information technology services among people, businesses, and government. The main goal of Vive Digital is to provide broadband connectivity to X million people by 2014.
•Regarding broadband bandwidth, resolution X of 2010 modified the definition of “broadband,” establishing a minimum effective download speed of Kbps.
•In December 2010, Act 1430, which eliminates the charge of IVA taxes to Internet services for users in the X, X and X social strata, was approved.
•Additionally, in March 2010, MinTIC launched the auction for a X-MHz block of the X-GHz spectrum frequency for the mobile services market. The main objective was to increase competition by attracting a new operator. UNE, The Telco unit of Empresas Publicas de Medellin (EPM) won the bid and is currently deploying a LTE network.
•Market concentration is expected to intensify, since all operators are increasing their capabilities through mergers and fusions of their formerly separated divisions. Such is the case of America Movil, which is merging its mobile operations, Comcel, with Telmex.
