Chile's telecom sector is one of the most open and mature in Latin America, with full competition allowed in all areas and a state-of-the-art infrastructure and regulatory system. The country's market-oriented economy has made it a popular target with both national and international investors.

Fixed-mobile substitution is particularly strong in Chile, with fixed-line teledensity slipping while mobile penetration continues to climb. Many Chileans are turning to mobile solutions also for their broadband access. Mobile broadband using USB modems is declining, given that handset tethering has made the separate purchase of dongles unnecessary, and operators' investment in network upgrades has made mobile broadband through 3G devices and smartphones standard among consumers. Major drivers in the smartphones boom include lower handset prices and the intensive use of social networks.

A Digital Agenda for 2013-2020 dubbed Agenda Digital Imagina Chile 2013-2020 has set out a roadmap for the long-term development of Chile's ICT sector, including five strategic axes and 30 specific initiatives or goals to facilitate telecom access for all Chilean citizens.

This report provides an overview of Chile's telecom sector and regulatory environment, accompanied by statistical data and market analyses.
