We have made some forecast revisions to our Chile mobile outlook for the Q416 report update. The market posted a strong rebound in terms of subscriber growth in H116, bolstered by WOM's low cost services. Increased access to 3G/4G services, as operators launch LTE in acquired 700MHz spectrum later in the year, will spur growth in the market - trickling down growth into the mobile broadband segment, particularly within rural areas. We also anticipate that moderate growth will continue within fixed-line services, supported by multi-service capabilities of existing infrastructure. The discounting of inactive users will, however, see negative net subscriber additions in some quarters towards the end of the forecast period in 2020.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- Chile's mobile market lost an estimated 603,000 subscribers in 2015, a decline we attribute largely to the discounting of inactive SIM cards. The market added an impressive 760,000 new subscribers in the first six months of 2016, however, as it began to rebound from the discounting of 2015. The prime focus of the three large operators is now on migrating prepaid customers to value-added data packs. 3G and 4G services will be the primary drivers of growth with 3G/4G connections expected to surpass 23mn by the end of the forecast period in 2020.

- Broadband internet subscriptions are expected to exceed 4.1mn by the end of 2020, up from 3.52mn at the end of 2015 and equivalent to a penetration rate of almost 22%. Encouraging fixed broadband, fibreoptic connections are beginning to play an important role in the market. The proliferation of 4G LTE services will also help maintain medium-term growth momentum.
