BMI View: MVNOs and 4G services are having a significant impact on the trajectory of the Colombian mobile market. Virgin Mobile in particular has continued its success across Latin America. This should help with competition dynamics, as well as result in downward pressures on ARPU spending. LTE demonstrates the development of the market, with greater demand for higher-value data services, with the uptake of LTE services growing more than five-fold. New launches of 4G from Avantel and DirecTV hope to tap into this demand and shake up competition dynamics. The merger of Tigo and UNE-EPM will create a stronger player in the broadband market with a greater ability to offer converged services. Further, the relaunch of Vive Digital after a successful 2010-2014 run bodes well for mobile and fixed broadband growth over our forecast period.

Key Data
- Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Virgin Mobile Colombia's subscriber base was 1.991mn by the end of 2014, compared to 440,667 a year earlier, according to data from industry watchdog Ministry of Information Technology and Communication (MinTIC). Other local MVNOs Uff! Movil, Exito, Avantel and Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Bogotá (ETB) registered 1.182mn subscribers total at the end of 2014.
