BMI View:

Mergers and network investment are offering greater growth potential for wireline services, trends that are boosting growth in fixed-line services and putting innovations such as IPTV on the agenda for 2014. BMI believes that operators will increase their focus on data, network speed and content over 2014, seeing subscribers offered an increasing range of services and building revenue opportunities for operators. In the mobile sector, we remain concerned over increasing interference from the regulator and government intervention to reduce the dominance of market leader Claro. Nevertheless, BMI believes that Colombia will follow the emerging market trend of being a predominantly wireless communications market over the medium to long term if regulatory intervention remains limited.

Key Data

- Mobile forecasts were adjusted based on slower than expected growth. Extended to 2018, our mobile forecasts see 53.7mn connections by the end of our forecast period.
- The broadband market's growth is supported by ongoing interest in dedicated mobile broadband connection, which BMI believes will drive the long term growth potential.
- Small increases in fixed-line connections are supported by the increase in bundled services, with fixed braodband operators seeking the means to maintain as many fixed-line subscribers as possible.
